Brian Hastings became one of the most talked about poker players after that he won over $4 million dollars in one single session against the unknown Swede "Isildur1." The win is the biggest someone has ever had in a single session, so of course, it wasn't so strange that he ended up in almost all poker headlines around the globe.

After the huge win, one could read in his blog about how happy and chocked he was after winning so much money. Now, a few days later, he has made his first big interview. In this interview one can read that he could never see this happening when he started playing against "Isildur1" that day and that he feels very fortunate to be were he is right now, and even though he played very well, luck was a major factor, according to himself. Brian Hastings says that he have received a lot of great feedback from players and friends after the big win, which he is really thankful for.

Its also mentioned in the interview that according to some rumors, a few players had a piece of his big win. However that was nothing he wanted to leave out any details about. And when he was asked about a possible comeback from "Isiludur1", he answered that he's a great player and that he for sure will be back at the high stakes in a near future.

He might suck but his win will not be forgotten. Lets see what happens about his possible cheating scandle / collousion / paying off others ? it will all come out in the end just wait and see. i dont think this will be the end of it for Brian Hastings.
He could even get kicked off Fulltilt as a result of his actions and what he has said to an interviewer.

surely he's won big and earned him some name for that, but he'll regret whole his life for accepting using databases if fulltilt decide to take action against him.

I wouldn't call a high stakes regular and a cardrunners coach a noob. Blink

But he was "only" 800k up for the year before that session.

This is why it appeared a forum asking us what would we do if this hapeened. Well, Hastings is no "jon doe" player. Ok, so he is not a pro between pros, but he plays a lot for a long tim ago, and he knew what he was doing when going against Isildur. He ends up being the best because Isildur decided to extend his tilt thinking he could manage to end up better then things were running, but that didnt happened. This way, Hasting kept winning each time more in a row, till the time he was is the best winning level ever. Good for him!
