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 in 2014.
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 more than a year, I worked 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 happy to report that the book has been received with overwhelmingly positive reviews. You definitely want a copy, so visit our website at PokerTilt.com and click the order button!
@peytoneli7 It doesn't come mich nicer than Caesars Palace for Total Rewards properties. El Cortez suites are good value for the price.2 days ago
Watching one of the guys at my starting table... it's like someone told him it was a seven card game and he took it to heart. #neverfold2 days ago

@SavagePoker I guess it's a lot dumber of a question than all of the "oversize chip = bet or call?" ones you're usually flooded with.4 days ago
Fifth cash is in the books: 376th in the #MonsterStack after QQ < 44 on a 642 board after 3-betting preflop. Trying to learn to fold. #wsop4 days ago
Coming back to level 17 with 291k in chips... going to be a bloody couple of levels. Default to folding after a big meal. #MonsterStack4 days ago
@SavagePoker Just had a dealer tell me, and a floor confirm, that I can't ask how much an all-in shove is for until my turn to act. True?4 days ago

On the stone cold bubble in the #monsterstack... which means shit is about to get CRAZY! Difference between 1040th and 72nd is ~ $18. #kappa4 days ago
@randiferous87 Brutal, bro. Sorry to hear it go down like that. Fucking unbeatable hand my ass.4 days ago
QQ < AK < AJ... all-in preflop for 30k each. Poker is stoopid sometimes. Still sitting on 160k. But that was a pretty critical best. :/4 days ago
@randiferous87 Aim higher, bud! Lol. Hope to see you at the final table, bro.4 days ago

We've already busted six players at our table. If Monster Stack equals more play, a lot of these guys didn't get the memo. #wsop #poker5 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?
