Headlining the action at the World Series of Poker yesterday was the finale of Event #33, the $1K NLHE, where embattled poker pro Dutch Boyd bested the field of 1,688 to win $288K+ and his 3rd gold bracelet.
Dutch has, pretty much always, been a controversial figure in poker and he made headlines this summer by doing some epic trash-talking about Two Plus Two head honcho Mason Malmuth.
In his winner’s interview with Remko Rinkema from PokerNews Dutch explains that right before he was going to make some serious money at the Final Table, Mason Malmuth alledgedly filed a writ of garnishment, just to make sure that he got his!
Boyd, putting that frustration behind him, talks about the tense final table and how his rail really helped propel him to victory. Winning his 3rd bracelet is nice validation for Dutch – as he joins a number of repeat bracelet winners this summer – but the money, especially after Mason’s cut, is not enough for him to ride off into the sunset as such we’ll be seeing more of Boyd at the Rio this summer.
