Day 5  of the 2012 WSOP Main Event finished with the chip lead bouncing around like a super ball and the day ended with these current top nine chip leaders:

Kyle Keranen – 6,935,000, Robert Salaburu – 6,195,00, Taylor Paur – 5,820,000, Erik Hellman – 4,715,00, Wilfried Haerig – 4,505,000, Shahriar Assareh – 4,395,000, Charles Coultas – 4,015,000, Gaelle Baumann – 3,980,000, and Fabrizio Gonzalez – 3,935,000. Without a doubt these names will change during the course of Day 6 and Day 7, but who do you want to see still alive at the end and sitting at the Final Table?

There are a total of 97 very qualified contenders left to battle it out for the FINAL NINE, (the Niners) and although everyone of them is now guaranteed at least $62,000 you can bet they all have their eye on the final table . Who will be at that final table in October?
