Alan Goehring (born February 21 1962) is a retired American junk bond analyst and trader from Henderson, Nevada. At the age of 37, he became a professional poker player.

Goehring first made his mark on the poker circuit when he finished in 3rd place in the $3,000 No Limit Hold-Em event at the 1997 World Series of Poker (WSOP). He won $61,845 in the tournament, which also featured Kathy Liebert, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Donnacha O'Dea and Dan Harrington.

In 1999 Goehring finished 2nd in the WSOP $10,000 No Limit Hold-Em Main Event to eventual winner Noel Furlong. He won $768,625 for his efforts. This finish, coupled with several other 2nd place finishes, including in Bellagio's Inaugural No Limit Hold-Em tournament, earned him a reputation as a player who "could not win the big one."

Goehring eventually overcame this status by winning the World Poker Tour (WPT) $25,000 season 1 championship, overcoming Russian newcomer Kirill Gerasimov in the eventual heads-up confrontation to take home a $1,011,886 grand prize. The final table also included Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson and Ted Forrest.

Goehring made two final tables in the WPT's 4th season. He finished 6th at the 2005 WPT €10,000 Grand Prix de Paris, eventually won by Roland De Wolfe. He went on to win the LA Poker Classic later in the season, winning a WPT record-breaking $2,391,550.

Howard "The Professor" Lederer has repeatedly spoken positively about the quality of Goehring's play on his website.

As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $5,200,000.[1]
