Over the past several months, the world’s largest online poker site, PokerStars has been creating an online pro team, which is a different entity entirely from its Team PokerStars group. For this honor, PokerStars received over 2,000 applications and from them, selected 23 players from 18 countries who represent some of the best and brightest in the online poker world. It was recently announced, that popular online grinder, Dusty “Leatherass” Schmidt has just been added to the team.

Excited about the event, Schmidt was quoted as saying

“I feel like I’ve joined the Yankees. Getting the opportunity to represent the largest poker room in the world is definitely something that makes all of the hard work feel worthwhile. I couldn’t be more honored.”

Schmidt is among one of the hardest working online poker pros in the world and has been estimated as playing over 10,000 hours and 8 million hands over the past 5 years alone. In that stretch, he has enjoyed his greatest amount of success as he has earned more than $3 million in winnings.
