Who is JohnnyBax? JohnnyBax is Cliff Josephy, a stockbroker from Syosset, NY. Not only does JohnnyBax have a number of big online tournament wins under his belt, but he also famously captured a World Series of Poker bracelet for Seven Card Stud in 2005, taking down over $190k in the process. JohnnyBax had never played a hand of Seven Card Stud in his life before the tournament started, and received a 5 minute coaching lesson from Scott Fischman and his crew before the event started. And then went on to win the entire tournament.
