She'll strap herself to a snowboard. She'll travel the world. She'll pump iron in the gym. She'll hit the road and drive for hours. She'll do all of that just as soon as she finishes up grinding through enough hands to make Supernova Elite.
This, friends, is Tatiana 'Mysters_Y' Barausova. It's not been too long since she sat at her brother's side and watched him play online. She put in a little deposit and started grinding the microstakes. Now? She's made Supernova Elite in both 2011 and 2012. She doesn't plan giving up that status in 2013. And that's why she is the newest member of Team Online.
If the screen name seems more familiar than the face, that's probably because of how much time Barausova spends online. Not only has she worked her way up to $25/$50 games, she's also had some decent success in the Sunday majors, including a big day in March of last year when she made the final tables of both the Sunday Warm-Up and $109 Sunday Rebuy.
Now she's taking her spot under the flag of the big red spade as PokerStars' newest representative on Team Online. You'll find her continuing to play under the screen name Mysters_Y.
