-- World Series of Poker logo - with shadow --The final table of the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship, which is set to get under way on Tuesday afternoon, will feature two of the Mizrachi brothers.

Robert Mizrachi will take the chip lead with him into Day 5 on Tuesday, as he managed to finish Day 4 with a stack of around 3.125 million chips. David Baker is hot on Robert Mizrachi's heels though, as he managed to finish play on Monday with around 3.095 million in chips.

Not only will Robert Mizrachi have to contend with the likes of John Juanda and Daniel Alaei at the final table, but he'll also have to deal with his brother, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi.

"The Grinder" finished Day 4 fifth in chips, as he will take a stack of around 2.175 million with him into the final table. Mizrachi, who has two World Poker Tour titles under his belt, will surely enjoy the fact that the tournament will switch from an 8-game mix to strictly No Limit Hold'em at the final table.

Here are the chip stacks heading into the final table on Tuesday:

Robert Mizrachi - 3,125,000
David Baker - 3,095,000
John Juanda - 2,620,000
Mikael Thuritz - 2,300,000
Michael Mizrachi - 2,175,000
Vladimir Schmelev - 1,925,000
Daniel Alaei - 1,705,000
David Oppenheim - 460,000

Each of the eight final table participants are guaranteed at least $182,463 for making it this far, with the eventual winner of the event taking home about $1.56 million.

There is an abundance of talent still left in this tournament, which will make for a very entertaining final table on Tuesday.
