As his poker pseudonym "leatherass" suggests, Dusty Schmidt is the ultimate No Limit grinder. He has played well over 10 million hands and won over $5 million in his 9-year career. Despite putting enough volume in to become one of the first PokerStars SuperNova Elites in 2007, he has posted some of the highest win rates in the game. He later became a member of PokerStars Team Online. In addition to crushing games as high as $25/$50, he has written 2 books (Treat Your Poker Like a Business and Don’t Listen To Phil Hellmuth) and produced hundreds of poker coaching videos. He’s also awesome at golf, but that’s a story for another day. Or you can go read the feature that Sports Illustrated did on him.
