Dutch Boyd, a poker pro originally from Missouri who now resides in Vegas, won his third bracelet in Event #33: No-Limit Hold'em yesterday. The tournament attracted 1,688 players and Boyd was the only player with a gold bracelet to his name on the final table.
The fact is that only one other player on the final table had any previous final table experience: Gabriel Nassif, who finished in 8th place, played his fifth career WSOP final table.
This was Boyd's 4th cash and first final table appearance at the 2014 World Series of Poker. In total, he has more than $1.7 million in WSOP earnings!
"It not like this win is going to change my life, or anything. It's not life-changing money for me," Boyd told WSOP after the win. "But it's good to come here in the summer and prove to everyone over and over that you're a relevant player again. Three bracelets is a pretty big accomplishment. There really is a difference between one and two, and two and three."
