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
