Dutch Boyd Takes Down Event #33 of WSOP For $288,744Published on June 18th, 2014 4:48 am EST
Dutch Boyd, easily one of the most polarizing figures in the poker world today, took down Event #33 ($1,000 No Limit Hold'em) of the World Series of Poker for $288,744 earlier tonight.
Boyd defeated Steven Norden during heads-up play to claim the third World Series of Poker bracelet of his career. Dutch now joins the likes of Barry Greenstein, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and Vanessa Selbst as players who have won three career bracelets.
Dutch Boyd has been playing some strong poker at the World Series of Poker this year (this was his fourth cash of the 2014 WSOP so far), but he also needed some luck at the final table to take down his third bracelet. There was one point of the final table where Boyd was all-in holding A7 vs his opponent's AK, but a 7 on the river came and allowed Boyd to stay alive and eventually earn the victory.
It's certainly been an interesting year for Dutch Boyd. He wrote a book (that was funded via a Kickstarter campaign). He moved back to Las Vegas. He was on the losing end of a "cybersquatting" lawsuit that was filed by TwoPlusTwo.
Now, in the latest twist, Dutch has taken down his third World Series of Poker bracelet.
