PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker PLO 6-max winner Jani Viliumen leads the way, with a 3:2 chip lead over his nearest opponent, Aarno Kivelio. Interestingly, the chip leader has position on the second-place man which could make for some huge pots at the final table.Well, it’s Omaha – huge pots are a given. This final table also contains huge names, with multiple WSOP bracelet-winner and Full Tilt Poker co-owner Howard Lederer in joint fourth place (making his second final table in succession at the WSOPE) In addition, PLO specialist Robert Williamson III is there, albeit with a very short stack, and Hendon mobster Ross Boatman joins the party too. Roberto Romanello and Jeff Kimber have also tagged along and are flying the British flag.Play resumes at 1pm today when a winner will be crowned in the event.The full chip counts and seat assignments are as follows:Seat 1: Robert Williamson III -- 64,000 Seat 2: Ville Haavisto -- 249,000 Seat 3: Howard Lederer -- 320,000 Seat 4: Jeff Kimber -- 133,000 Seat 5: Dan Hindin -- 320,000 Seat 6: Aarno Kivelio -- 608,000 Seat 7: Jani Vilmunen -- 899,000 Seat 8: Roberto Romanello -- 306,000 Seat 9: Ross Boatman -- 180,000
