A huge tournament weekend for Finnish pro Sami "LarsLuzak" Kelopuro saw him take home close to $300k with two impressive final-table finishes.

The high-stakes cash-game regular went deep in both of the marquee events this weekend - the PokerStars Sunday Million and the $2,100 FTOPS NL Six-Max - to lock down his biggest payday to date in 2013.

Kelopuro's deepest run came in the FTOPS Six-Max where he navigated an extremely tough 776-player field all the way to a runner-up finish to Kevin "-1sickdisease" Eyster.

Kelopuro pocketed $218,832 for his effort while Eyster scored $333,680.

Fifth-Place Finish in Massive Sunday Million

As if that wasn't a solid enough weekend, Kelopuro carried his momentum into the massive 9,498-player Sunday Million - the biggest of 2013 so far outside of the Anniversary event -  and ran it all the way to fifth place and another $75,984.

Former EPT London winner Aaron "Aguskb" Gustavson also made the final table in that one, finishing eighth for $20,895.60. Results for each event below:
