Published on 21 August 2016 by Pokerlistings 564

Cliff Josephy, aka JohnnyBax, is one of the biggest poker backers in the game's history. Legend has it he backed Joe Cada when he won the WSOP Main Event in 2009 and Annette Obrestad when she won the WSOP Europe Main Event in 2007. Now Josephy finds himself at the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event with a huge chip lead and a chance at up to $8 million in prize money. In this short video Josephy discusses what the experience means to him, what it meant backing those other successful players and how he wishes the final table would play out without a break since he was riding a huge wave of momentum and good luck. Check out the video and keep an eye on at the end of October to see if Cliff Josephy can become the next world champion of poker.
