John Duthie Bio

 

Before making his mark on the poker world, John Duthie was a successful director of serial dramas in the UK. He played high-stakes poker for a number of years, and in 2000, he won the Poker Million event, which was good for $1 million. It made him the first person to win that much in a televised event in the UK.

Combining his poker talent and experience in television production, Duthie launched the European Poker Tour in association with PokerStars. The tour has grown over the years and now includes several stops all over Europe and is televised in more than 40 countries. Duthie continues competing and cashing in major tournaments all over the world. Duthie was brought in to coach the new James Bond, Daniel Craig, in Casino Royale, where poker plays an integral part in the film.
