There will be two very recognizable names sitting at the final table of the PoekrStars.net EPT Tallinn Main Event on Sunday, as a pair of Fins, tournament pro Jani Sointula and online mega-star Sami “LarsLuzak” Kelopuro, have both weaved their way into the final 8 of the tournament. However, both players will have a bit of a hill to climb in order to chase down the chip-leaders, Ronny Kaiser and Grzegorz Cichocki, both of whom have crossed the 2 million chip threshold –of the remaining players only Kelopuro managed to amass over 1 million chips.

Kelopuro is coming off an excellent 2011 WSOP, where the young Fin nearly won a bracelet in the $10k PLO Championship, finishing second to WSOP Player of the Year front-runner and November Niner Ben Lamb, which he followed up with a very deep run in the WSOP Main Event before bowing out in 111th place.

Sointula is a more seasoned tournament player, and has been quietly establishing himself as one of the top tournament talents in the world over the past five years or so.

Here is a look at the final table seating assignments and chip counts for the EPT Tallinn Main Event:

* Seat 1: Grzegorz Cichocki — 2,059,000

* Seat 2: Raigo Aasmaa — 904,000

* Seat 3: Jani Sointula — 769,000

* Seat 4: Stuart Fox — 514,000

* Seat 5: Arvi Vainionkulma — 258,000

* Seat 6: Sami Kelopuro — 1,325,000

* Seat 7: Erlend Melsom — 326,000

* Seat 8: Ronny Kaiser — 2,394,000
