She plays online at PokerStars and has played 26,000 tournaments in about two years. Teija Halkosaari takes the time to discuss her poker life in this interview article, including her recent second place in the Women's Sunday, previous PS Women Live prize package, and how she got into poker in the first place.

Here is an excerpt from the interview:

I think that the single largest mistake people make when playing poker online is to do other things at the same time. Even though it might be easy for example to wander around the Internet during your games, don't. If hands just seem to come too slow and you constantly have time to do other things, you can always add more tables. Concentrating just on poker without interruptions makes it easier to get a right mindset on the tables.

Playing online you can easily become complacent. You might just play the same games every day, the same amount of tables, and do the same things every time. I think sometimes you need to get slightly out of your comfort zone to learn new things. For instance, try playing differently against familiar players or add a table and see how it goes. Don't give up and stay on the safe side. You can always improve your game.
