He started on the PAF, Ongame Network poker website, where he made several depots of 30 euros each, and began playing $0.25/$0.50 and $0.50/$1.00 games. At the time, he was just finishing high school, but was able to devote up to 10 hours a day to playing online poker. Six months after graduating from high school, Kelopuro joined the Finnish Defence Forces, where he stayed for nine months. While there, he continued playing online poker. During his service, he decided that he wanted to play poker professionally after completing his service. When playing high stakes online poker, Kelopuro has experienced daily swings of up to a million dollars.[3]
