It’s slightly surprising considering Boyd started college at 12 years old, had his Associates by 13, Bachelors by 15 and Juris Doctorate at 18.
Getting turned down for the job prompted Boyd to start a thread on Reddit about the lamest reason to be turned down for a job.
Instead the thread quickly devolved into various Redditors slamming Boyd for his former involvement with PokerSpot.com and the site's failure to pay back players.
It’s eye opening to see Boyd, who was a sponsored pro in the mid-2000s, looking for a regular job.
Boyd has over $2 million in lifetime tournament earnings including the two World Series of Poker victories.
Daniel Negreanu talks Erick Lindgren.
2) Negreanu Discusses Integrity, Lindgren, Lederer in Latest Video
Daniel Negreanu, sporting a new shaved-head look, bared his soul about integrity in his latest video rant.
Negreanu has taken some flack for blasting Howard Lederer for the Full Tilt mess while seemingly giving close friend Erick Lindgren a pass despite Lindgren allegedly owing a lot of money to people like Haralabos Voulgaris.
The video opens with Negreanu telling a story about how he made a bet in the early stages of his poker career that he was initially unable to pay back and the shame he felt about that incident.
Negreanu doesn’t always mention Lindgren by name in the video but does admit that one of his friends has made some “horrifyingly” bad mistakes.
One of Negreanu’s key arguments is that he feels Howard Lederer has never truly apologized to the poker community for his actions while other questionable characters have.
