Dutch Boyd is nuts

(Yes, I realize the title of this thread is zero surprise)

long-ish story to follow....

Today at the wsop expo my buddy Mike and I saw Kenna James singing a country tune on the Aussie Millions karaoke setup. If that wasn't strange enough, the song ended with him and Dutch Boyd singing out the last chorus together.

After they finished, it looked to me like the perfect time to get Dutch to autograph a couple of playing cards (5-T offsuit....it's a "signature hand" of a home game I play in, and we have a ton of cards signed by a gajillion different pros...just for fun)

Me: "Dutch, you think you can sign a couple of cards for me?"
Dutch: "you want MY autograph?"
Me: "Yeah. I know who you are. I like to read your blog. Interesting stuff."
Dutch: "Right on"

(I hand him the cards)

Dutch: "What's with the five-ten?"
Me: "It's kind of a signature hand for a poker league I play with"

(I show him that I have a big stack of cards presorted into five-ten, hoping to assure him I'm not some douche who's just handing him 2 random cards out of a deck that have zero meaning)

Dutch: "Very cool. You know two red fives are my favorite hand. That's what I won my bracelet with"

(he then takes the stack of cards out of my hands and starts pulling out all the red fives - while holding them, he proceeds to sign the back of one of the cards, including with some sort of chinese looking symbol. He then puts the stack of red fives in his shirt pocket, hands me the signed card, turns his back to me and tells his girlfriend that he and Kenna want to go get high)

Me: "Hey there man, can I I have my cards back"
Dutch: "Do I own you money?"
Me: "Uhhh. No?"
Dutch: "Well autographs aren't free" (w/crazy eyes darting all around)

(turns his back to me again)

Me: "Dude, uhh, you must have me confused with someone else. How about you gimme my cards"

(turns back with a 'seriously I just may start throwing my own feces' sorta look on his face)

Dutch: "Well do you have a business card?"

Me: "What? Uhhh, Yeah, actually." (thinking this dude is fuggin nuts)

Dutch: "Well give me your business card, and I'll trade you these cards back"

(I whip out my business card and hand it to him)

Dutch: "Thanks man!" (hands me my cards along with a business card for the company that makes those electronic dealer buttons and goes back to talking to girlfriend about plans to go get high with Kenna)


To summarize: This dude is fuggin nuts. I can't even tell if he thought he was just being funny by trying to keep the cards, trying to be "tough" by keeping the cards, or just plain "I haven't taken my meds" Dutch. The whole experience made me and Mike walk away scratching our heads....

Seconded. I've always thought Dutch was a tool box who fails at life big time. I mean he's certainly funny in the I-like-to-read-stuff-by-him-or-about-him-because-he's-the-poker-world's-caged-chimp kinda way.

This is yet another confirmation. Here's hoping he walks into a grease fire someday....

You realise that this "poor guy" stole lots of money from poker players right? I mean, by now he might be finishing his jail time if the company was ran from the US instead of the bahamas or wherever.

He deserves no love, whatever his excuses for being bat**** insane.

Re: Dutch Boyd is nuts

He is one strange cat. He's often articulate and is clearly smart -- but he's weirdly unbalanced. I played with him in a tourney one time and he was utterly rock-still for an entire level. He had an unlit cigarette in his mouth and I didn't see it move even slightly for the entire ninety minutes. He didn't say a single word.

He paints a good picture but I know someone, an acquaintance really, who is bi-polar and "manages" it, to use a Dutch word, considerably better than he does.

You really think this is a valid excuse for every single "crazy" a-hole thing he does? Everytime he does an a-hole thing "Oh, it's his bi-polar ldo". Is he defaulted to doing crazy "bad" things (like episode with OP) as a result of his bi-polar? There are two sides to a bi-polar sufferer. Good (or normal as the case maybe) and bad.

Secondly, I've heard waaaaaaaay too many stories to give him the benefit of the doubt. I'd also be more inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt if he didn't do as many dr*gs as it appears he does. I don't think he does himself any favours.

Thirdly, this doesn't sound like the bad side of his bi-polar coming out...I'm no doctor though. This just sounds like an arseh0le being an arseh0le.

the man graduated from law school when he was like 18 and he has a bracelet. Match that and then talk ****.

Also talk **** if you are really bipolar.

Re: Dutch Boyd is nuts

Getting high will often cause the "bad side" of bipolar disorder to come out.

So I've got to graduate law school at 18 and win a bracelet to be able to talk **** about how someone behaves in public on 234093284203 rumoured occasions?

[ ] excellent benchmark for being eligible for ****-talking.

Why is "Bi-Polar" the new excuse for being an idiot? Boyd, Matusow,...etc

For real.

I know like 100+ girls that are bi polar, and pretty much none of them are obnoxious and act crazy like that.

An ******* is an *******.. no matter what disorder they use as an excuse.

You take your meds, and you'll be fine. Oh, and don't get high when your on bipolar meds. As someone who is pursuing my masters in psychology, that is one of the dumbest thing you can do. Either combination of bipolar and getting high, or being on bipolar meds and getting high, is dumb as **** imo.
