Bax and Baron make $5k PLO Day 3
Sorel Mizzi and Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy lead the WSOP's $5k Pot Limit Omaha event with eleven players still in contention.
Meanwhile, highly-touted youngster Isaac Baron is the short stack with just seven big blinds after a trying day that saw him flirt with the chip lead earlier in Day 2.
"I just have to get luckier earlier tomorrow than I was expecting," Baron told PokerListings.com.
"I was expecting to have to get lucky when it got a little more short-handed at the final table, but now I'm probably going to have to get lucky at the beginning, double up and go from there."
Despite his precipitous fall from grace, Baron told PokerListings.com he didn't feel his play was entirely to blame.
"I've played pretty well," he said. "I might have made a couple of bad decisions but it's been a rollercoaster, which isn't really surprising."
Josephy credited his own 805k stack to solid play and good timing.
"I didn't do anything outrageous or special up to this point," he said. "I've just played well and solid and let the weaker players make mistakes."
He told PokerListings.com his plan for tomorrow's final table is simple.
Action resumes Friday at 2 p.m. with 213 survivors.
