Dutch Boyd Answers Critics With 3rd WSOP Bracelet

Dutch Boyd Answers Critics With 3rd WSOP BraceletDutch Boyd won his first WSOP bracelet back in 2006, but since winning a second career bracelet in 2010, the controversial US pro has been through the mill and in 2012 announced he had “fallen on hard times” and was broke. This year was been equally as eventful and only last month Boyd lost a cyber-squatting lawsuit against Two Plus Two Publishing LLC, saddling him with a further $60K bill.
On the positive side, however, the 34 year-old did get his Kickstarter funded book, “Poker Tilt” published, a book which is likely to attract still further attention after its author just took down WSOP $1,000 No Limit Hold’em (Event #33) for a $288,744 payday. On his way to securing an impressive third gold bracelet Boyd had to first navigate his way through a 1,688 player field over three days at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, after which he answered his critics by commenting:
“One of my book reviews said that ‘Dutch Boyd is nothing more than a footnote to kind of an interesting time in poker. And I read that and it stung a little bit. If two bracelets is a footnote, then I don’t know. What are we doing here? I really think that every single person that walks on that stage and comes away with gold has really put their name in the history book. It feels good to have done that three times because you can’t really argue with three.”
Having reached the final table of ten, Dutch Boyd (10-10) then eliminated Vinny Pahuja (2-2) in 7th ($34,668), and Paul Cogliano in 3rd ($117,464), to take a narrow chip lead into heads-up play against fellow American Steven Norden. Boyd was subsequently able to close out the victory holding A-4 to Norden’s K-5, after calling his opponent’s all-in river bluff on a 7-3-3-A-6 board.
Commenting on his final two opponents, Boyd, explained: “I was looking for the spots, you know? I was able to pick up that Paul was three-betting light when he was short stacked. He was flatting with his big hands and three-betting with his light hands. The live stream helped. Then I was heads-up with Steve and I found some pretty blatant betting patterns. Once I got heads-up with Steve, I didn’t think there was any chance I was walking out of here without the gold.”
