Alex Borteh is a professional poker player who won a World Series of Poker bracelet in a World Series of Poker event, the $3,000 Limit Hold'em event. Borteh has cashed in 4 WSOP events and made two final tables. In 2005, he finished in 3rd place in the $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout event. Borteh prefers limit hold'em to no-limit hold'em, considering the former a game that requires more skill.

Before becoming a poker player, Borteh finished second at the 2001 World Championship for Magic: The Gathering[1] This was the tournament in which fellow bracelet winner David Williams was disqualified because of marked cards.[2]

Borteh is a 2001 graduate from Olentangy High School in Lewis Center, Ohio. He earned a degree in Philosophy from Ohio State University.

As of 2008, his live tournament winnings exceed $320,000.
