Paolo Boi (1528–1598) was an Italian chess player. He is considered to have been one of the greatest chess players of the 16th century.

He was born in Syracuse, Sicily (now Italy) and died in Naples. Historian H.J.R. Murray says he was poisoned by jealous rivals. Other sources say he caught a cold when hunting and died as a result of it.
