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!
@a2hosting I've been recommending you guys for the last year. But not anymore after the support email I just got. Probably losing me to AWS.3 hours ago

@TravisHerzing It's an auto-mod... maybe it was in all caps? Don't take it personally... he's a robot and doesn't mean anything by it.4 hours ago

@R3D_CAF3 Last place I played was Sharks on Decatur. Great pool hall, but very smokey. Not sure if the new smoke-free pool hall has it.1 day ago
@TheRealMarkcus Wow. Crazy call by that guy. Nah, you played it fine... if anything, I probably would have raised less preflop. Same result.1 day ago
Hitting up another Twitch stream. Made some big mistakes last night. Hopefully got it out of my system. http://t.co/FsG9DfxNIm #poker #wsop1 day ago

@bbqkid8 you're the best man! Thanks for supporting the stream. Wouldn't be doing it without the subs.2 days ago
@blufenuf it was lackluster. 5 cashes but nothing major enough to cover the summer. Best finish was 11th in 2-7. Cashed in the online event.2 days ago
Going to try to put up some results live for the stream tonight. If you haven't watched Twitch yet, come hang out : http://t.co/fycHVB6JmR2 days 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.
Check out my latest appearances in our favorite poker media outlets!
Random thoughts, life reports, poker book excerpts, site reviews, and lots more.
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?
