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!
If there's one thing that watching @RuPaulsDragRace , it's that drag is about more than just dressing up to look beautiful! #nowsissythatwalk16 hours ago

Raw talent in poker is like raw meat at a BBQ. If you don't put in the work, it can end up pretty badly.… https://t.co/wqSTptyryx6 days ago

I really hate watching pros get it in as a huge favorite in tournament defining pots, only to get sucked out on. It tilts me.1 week ago
If the TDA ever does standardize chip colors, which I think is a good idea, you should make sure they are colorblind friendly. @SavagePoker1 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?
