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!
@BeL0WaB0Ve I know you're trying to help! I meant the thanks sincerely.4 hours ago
@BeL0WaB0Ve Thanks for the constructive criticism.4 hours ago
@BeL0WaB0Ve I'll respectfully disagree. Why not see flops in position against hands we dominate that won't call a preflop shove?14 hours ago
@brandoncantu Link is dead. Probably should find a more permanent place to host if you want to keep your story out there. Medium post ftw?14 hours ago

Pro tip: Don't ask the dealer if there is a dinner break in your tournament. It makes you look new. Just find a structure sheet on break.3 days ago
@TuckonSports If it were just the page count, I'd think you were right. But locations replacing players on the cover? Poker is dying.4 days ago
@msalsberg I'd say, but it will just put me on tilt.4 days ago
Always depresses me seeing paper-thin CardPlayer magazines with photos of casinos gracing the cover. So symbolic of poker's decline.4 days ago
My next invention in poker: padded rake boxes and rake latches, to save the kneecaps and elbows of dealers and 10-seats everywhere. #poker4 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?
