2015 WSOP - Event #27: Brian Hastings Wins His Second Gold Bracelet

In 2009, Brian Hastings was on everyone's lips after taking Viktor "Isildur1" Blom for $4.18 million in one single session on Full Tilt's nosebleed tables. (He won a futher $1.5 million in a later session against the legendary Swede).

Hastings, 26, is not only a successful high-stakes player online but also a great live tournament player. When it comes to the World Series of Poker, he took down his first event in 2012, the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em event for $371,498.

On Saturday, after besting a field of 91 players in Event #27: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship, he picked up his second gold bracelet! He defeated two-time gold bracelet winner Scott Clements in heads-up play. Also worth mentioning is that it was Clements' second final table appearance of this series, after finishing in 4th place in the $10k Omaha High-Low Split event last week.

"I felt really good coming into this year's series," he said. I came in with some high expectations. I thought I was in a very good place, with my girlfriend here with me and really on top of my A-game."

"The $50K Poker Players Championship - that's my next goal," Hastings added.

A great win for Brian Hastings and I have seen his name quite a few times this year and I think he has cashed a few times but he has always seemed to do well at the WSOP for the last few years.

Many congratulations to Brian Hastings on winning this event and the first prize of $239,518. I was surprised that this was only his second bracelet because i believe this guy is one of the best poker players on the planet

Being a Seven Card Stud Champion must have been nice but honestly is there any other less obscure type of poker besides this and Horse (or maybe Razz too) where beating the world means you beaten not just those usual hundred suspects who are always playing these live everywhere?
