Totti Matias Arosuo heads to the nine-max televised final table of the 2018 OlyBet Kings of Tallinn €1,100 Main Event at Olympic Park Casino with a huge chip lead after he amassed 1,959,000 chips or nearly one-quarter of all the chips in play. Juha Helppi, the Finish grinder with $7,118,359 in lifetime earnings, starts second in chips.

Day 4 of the event began with 24 hopefuls looking to make the final nine. Six Estonians were among the Day 4 field. However, this number was quickly reduced to just two with the first four players eliminated from the tournament all coming from the home country. That included Kelly Limonova who had the chip lead earlier in the tournament.

A couple of other players were eliminated before a fifth Estonian, Mihkel Parn, hit the rail in 18th place for €2,760, leaving Silver Nommik as the last Estonian standing. Despite never having a big stack throughout the day, Nommik made it through to the final table and will start the final table with the shortest stack in play.

Also eliminated on Day 4 were Latvian Team OlyBet Pro Dmitrijs Meless (13th - €3,560) when his ace-ten suited couldn't out flip the pocket sixes held by Lithuania's Arunas Garunkstis.

Bulgaria's Daniel Chutrov, who entered the day as the chip leader, also didn't survive the day taking 11th place for €4,070 when his pocket eights couldn't get there against pocket kings, followed by king-four not improving against ace-nine.

More than half of the remaining players are from Finland, with another two from Lithuania, one from Estonia, and one from Sweden.

In addition to Arosuo, Finland's final table representatives include Juha Helppi (second - 1,400,000), Arto Ilmari Loikkanen (third - 1,137,000), Quang Thanh Doan (sixth - 643,000) and Arto Antero Lehtonen (seventh - 626,000).
