A New Respect for Dutch Boyd

For the past couple of days, I've been lightly reading Dutch Boyd's blog. I've never been a particular fan of Dutch, but I've never disliked him either. When I've seen his Crew on ESPN, I always thought they look like a group of tools, but I think that is typical young male territorial pissing. In truth, I'd be glad to be in a crew like theirs. In a sense, my poker buddies and I make up our own loose crew, as we at one point all considered ourselves Poker Degenerates (Fun Fact: 'The Poker Degenerate' was almost the name of this blog).

So, I've been reading his blog from the first entry (Nov. 2004, I think) working forward. Its fairly interesting, as it gives insight into who he is outside of the poker room. It's also great to read about his interaction with other pros. Pardon the crappy analogy, but the way he talks about playing in the large tournaments sounds like Toon Town from "Who Framed Robert Rabbit?" All of these iconic figures are interacting in ways that seem so absurd. He seems to constantly bump into or correspond with other major pros like Marcel Luske, Phil Laak, Gregg Raymer (just to name a few) and a whole slew of others. The interaction between the pros is the best part. Apparently, he met his ex-girlfriend through Evelyn Ng. And Paul Phillips apparently had some not-so-nice words regarding Mr. Boyd. Oh, drama.

I have to say, I respect his format. He doesn't seem like the prick that many people assume he is (at least, according to his own website, many people think he is a prick).

So, respect to Boyd.

Also, respect to my readers, for linking me up to other blogs, and sending me emails. Check out DNasty13's Poker Blog, which is brand new and clearly has a lot of potential. Also, the Poker Gamer is a blog with some great in depth analysis. I look forward to reading future postings from both bloggers. Also, to Alvin, and anyone else who is interested in Golden Palace, check out GoldenPalacePoker.com and look for me under my account, brodybanky (its a long story). I'll be trolling the cheap rooms, most likely.

Finally, in law school, I wrote a paper on the legality of Internet Gambling, as a way to avoid doing any real work in a Computer Law class. My professor gave me a C+, which is a low grade for me. But, screw him. I guess my paper was more poker than computers. I'm thinking of posting the entire paper on here, but its pretty long (15 pages). Does anyone know how to set up a seperate page with a link? Holler back.
