Because she doesn’t play on the live circuit, Tatiana “Mysters_Y” Barausova isn’t exactly the world’s best known poker player. However, she figures to get a lot more attention after signing a deal with PokerStars Team Online. She’ll join other internet standouts such as Randy “nanonoko” Lew and Isaac “Ike Haxton” Haxton on this team.
Barausova has been excelling in online poker cash games over the past couple years. She’s made some excellent profits while playing NL Hold’em cash games ranging from the $3/$6 to $25/$50 limits. Based on her stats at HighStakesDB, Barausova has earned $45,770 in ring game profits. Keeping in mind that HSDB only tracks results at the $25/$50 stakes and above, it’s hard to tell how much more money the Russian has made during her career, but we’re sure it’s a lot more than $45.7k.
Barausova has accomplished the very difficult feat of being a PokerStars Supernova Elite VIP player two years in a row thanks to her frequent ring game play. Taking her VIP status into account, Barausova also makes a lot of money through the extra Supernova rewards and benefits.
One more thing worth mentioning about the Russian’s play is that she has experienced some pretty big tournament results as well. She’s final tabled both a $500,000 Sunday Warm-Up and $225,000 Sunday Rebuy to earn $35,787 from these cashes alone. We might see some other large tourney cashes from Barausova in the future since she’s talked about dedicating more time to tournaments.
Besides her talent on the felt, Barausova’s obvious beauty can’t be denied either. And since poker is such a male-dominated game, good-looking women are few and far in between. Taking all of this into account, we fully expect Tatiana to become a much bigger star in the poker world.
