Re: Dutch Boyd trying to raise money for tell all book via kickstarter

how on earth does this happen? Its hard for me to believe that someone who is relatively smart like that guy could end up busto. I mean its one thing if he tilted a bunch away but could he really be -EV playing 6 NL100 tables these days?

So somehow you're the guy to break the news on this amazing story? Or are you just someone getting some advertising time for Dutch? And why am I even asking this question in the first place?

You don't need $5k to write a book. If he has a compelling story, he can get it picked up by one of many publishers, or even self-publish it.

I pray no one donates a penny.

His book would be interesting as I'm sure he has many stories to tell, but like Moki said, I won't be paying him to write it....

Re: Dutch Boyd trying to raise money for tell all book via kickstarter

A book is the last thing you need a kick starter for. Self publishing is ridiculously easy and Boyd has 5,000 twitter followers and is 'poker famous'. If the book is genuinely interesting it will sell.

It's not uncommon for authors to do kick starters as a form of self published advance, but it's not needed. Boyd clearly needs 5k fast.

Re: Dutch Boyd trying to raise money for tell all book via kickstarter

Kickstarter really needs some standards. I'm surprised he didn't ask for more.

Chapter One is online as a preview LOL (wouldn't be surprised if it gets taken down, it's LOLbad)

get ready to have your mind blown " After years of playing poker I can now tell you with close to 100% certainty that psychic abilities do not exist at the poker table."

just awful stuff, and the whole smarmy if i ever go broke I can write a book wink wink

No one needs a kickstarter to write a book. Filthy scammer. If the book is good write it and find a publisher, otherwise it doesn't need to be written.

Annoyingly I quite enjoyed the introduction and first chapter but I wouldn't give him a dollar of your money never mind mine.

If you are one of the many readers who bought, borrowed, or stole this book looking for the nitty-gritty poker tips....
why are you asking a penniless lieing thieving bum for tips?....still nice to have the options for not paying you explained so clearly.
