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!
@ArmsBobby You are just basing all of these "facts" on your gut feel. You going to be ok with a curfew if it happens in Cincinnati?1 day ago
@Donnie_Peters Then I'd point to myself, Phil Ivey and Danny Alaei. Obviously kids play poker in regulated US markets.1 day ago
@truth_eater Why is the kid so sad when he's holding a royal flush? FWIW, I don't think your article is unfair (but it *is* one-sided).2 days ago
@sketchy1poker That's pretty funny. So now that kid gets to go to college. Thank you gambling.2 days ago
What I don't understand about the Newsweek cover story is why would the kid be sad when he's holding a royal flush? http://t.co/FPvj9U54Uj2 days ago
@Donnie_Peters "Can the author or Newsweek point to any cases of underage gaming in a regulated US market?" This is your counterpoint? Ugh.2 days ago
I think poker players need a lobbying group that isn't a mouthpiece for online poker sites. The two interests are not the same. #poker2 days ago
@ArmsBobby Nobody deserves to be gunned down in the street by a policeman while unarmed and hands raised. Doesn't matter what he did.2 days ago

@TottenhamKid The best thing about living in Vegas is the action comes to us. I do love AZ... if I was traveling the circuit, I'd be there.7 days ago

@TottenhamKid I don't see how it would matter. If one plays Day 1A and the other plays Day 1B, busts, then plays Day 1C... could get messy.1 week 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?
