Dusty Schmidt, also known as “Leatherass” on the popular poker forum 2+2, has become the new face of America’s Cardroom. As many readers probably already know, Schmidt is one of the most accomplished cash game players the online arena has ever scene. His winnings go well into the millions of dollars and it’s been rumored he’s never even had a losing month!
Dusty’s legend has increased over the years, as he has had quite the career since turning a once-dwindling bank account balance around 2007 into a consistent bankroll that has exceeded mid-6 figures. PokerStars would go on to employ him as one of their online poker pros after he gained even more notoriety by achieving Supernova Elite status on the site back in 2010.
The company issued a press release earlier this weekend regarding the announcement, with their main spokesman calling him a “rare elite talent who is as skilled at teaching the game as he is at playing it. Signing him as our new online poker pro is a major coup for Americas Cardroom.”
The new stable of online pros that America’s Cardroom is putting together will be aptly named the “ACR Elite.” Schmidt himself will be the main face of the group and he will also be in charge of hand-picking the talent himself. Up and coming grinders are encouraged to send in their resumes and backgrounds to ACR’s support team if they’re looking to become apart of the new ACR Elite group of pros.
“I’m extremely excited to represent Americas Cardroom,” Schmidt said. “It really is an honor. I’ve had a long relationship with the folks who run the company, and I think they’re great people.”
