Dutch Boyd Earns His Third World Series of Poker Bracelet

Boyd Picks Up $288,744 For The Victory


Russ "Dutch" BoydCard Player’s 2014 WSOP coverage is sponsored by CarbonPoker.

Russ “Dutch” Boyd, who made a name for himself by making a deep run in the 2003 World Series of Poker main event, is now a member of the three-bracelet club after taking down a $1,000 no-limit hold’em event at the 2014 summer series.

Boyd picked up $288,744 for the win after topping a field of 1,688 players, which created a total prize pool of $1,519,200. He now has over $2.4 million in career tournament earnings.

The 34-year-old poker pro, who graduated from law school at age 18, has had a tumultuous run in the poker world, experiencing the highs of tournament success and lows of criticism and controversy for his part in a number of poker-related business ventures. Despite his polarizing position in the poker world, he had more than his fair share of supporters on the rail cheering him to victory.

“It’s funny because people are always talking about how poker is an individual thing,” Boyd said. “But at a final table, the fans who are cheering really are a reality. Your support really helps you from ten players down to the end. I can tell you for sure that there were some plays that I made on the way to this third bracelet that I would not have been able to make without some people helping me out.”

Boyd topped a formidable final table that included notables Gabriel Nassif (8th), Vinny Pahuja (7th), William Givens (4th) and Steven Norden (2nd). Other notables to make a deep run included Faraz Jaka (11th), Sean Jazayeri (16th), Martin Finger (17th) and Justin Zaki (18th).

Here is a look at the final table results.
