Dusty Schmidt is a professional poker player, coach, and entrepreneur from Portland, OR. Before making his living playing poker, Schmidt was an up and coming golfer who broke two of Tiger Wood’s junior records and lead the money winner on the Golden States Tour. His career was cut short by a heart attack at age 23.
Online, Dusty is the epitome of “grinder” and known by the apt screen name “leatherass”. Schmidt has played over 7 million hands online and logged more than 10,000 hours in a 5-year span in which he has won over $3 million.
