My name is Dutch Boyd. I am a professional poker player, writer, developer, and the greatest Photohunt player to have ever lived. I lived every poker player’s dream by winning my World Series of Poker bracelet in 2006, going headsup against then reigning world champion Joe Hachem, all in front of the ESPN cameras. Then I did it again in 2010. Then again last week.
I have a perfect girlfriend, Michele. We live in Vegas with our dog, June. Basically, I'm just like you. Another player in life, moving forward, trying to make the right moves.
Welcome to my site.
Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.
For the last year I've been working on Poker Tilt, a book about my journey through the last decade as a poker player. The poker book was funded with a Kickstarter campaign. I'm now in the editing process, and expect the book to be out during the first week of May. You definitely want a copy, so visit our website at PokerTilt.com and click the preorder button!
Congrats, @bcrimmins , on reaching the Kickstarter goal... cut it pretty close! ;)55 minutes ago
I'd like to express my thanks that I was at the right place at the right unique time & made money w/out having to be good at poker. #poker21 hours ago
Make sure to wish Jack Effel a happy birthday. Hope it's a good one, Jack! @WSOPTD #poker #wsop1 day ago
Me: "Do you know what Gambler's Fallacy means?" Michele: "Yes. It means when everything is going wrong, buy a lottery ticket." #pass3 days ago
Lost half my stack in the WSOPC main 1b. A big part of winning these is not feeling short and desperate with 50BBs after a setback.4 days ago

@Fandango - That's about the least "convenient" fee I've ever had. Way to hide it from customers until after they click order. It's fraud.2 weeks ago
There is always more to learn about this game. Sometimes I give poker lessons. Even though my poker clinic is under development right now, you can still contact me if you are interested in seeing how I can help improve your poker game.
Every session is custom-tailored for you. We can’t know what we can’t know, which is why a poker mentor can make a huge difference in your game. I can work with you to eliminate leaks and improve on your strengths.
Every poker lesson is given as one-on-one video instruction in realtime between me and you over Skype. For as long as you want, my single goal will be to help you improve.
It is a small group of players who have taken down multiple World Series of Poker bracelets.
Other pros have charged thousands per hour for one-on-one lessons, if they offer them at all. But my philosophy is that I am getting something out of the process as well, and I price your lessons accordingly.
The truth is rarely pure, and never simple.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
I'd love to hear from you. Why not drop me an email?
