It's not an easy task to win a gold bracelet at the World Series of Poker - especially in recent years when so many great players participate in each event. Despite tough competition and big player-fields, it still happens that players win multiple bracelet in a single series, which is pretty increadible to say the least.

A big congratulations to Brian Hastings, the first double-winner of the 2015 WSOP! The 26-year-old high-stakes pro, who won Event #27 a week ago, defeated a field of 380 entries over 3 days of play in Event #39 - $1,500 Ten-Game Mix to claim his second bracelet of the 2015 WSOP and $133,403 in prize money! In total, he now has 3 gold bracelets and $1.2 million in WSOP earnings.

"I really felt like it -- yeah I thought I'd win," Hastings replied when asked if his overt confidence was just a tactic, or did he really think another victory was predestined. "You have to feel that way when you go into one of these, but I think I'm going to win almost every time I sit down and play."

Ten-Game Mix includes a rotation of the following poker games:

-- Seven-Card Stud
-- Pot-Limit Omaha
-- No-Limit Hold'em
-- Razz
-- Badugi
-- Omaha High-Low Split
-- Limit Deuce-to-Seven Triple Draw
-- No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Single Draw
-- Limit Hold'em
-- Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split

Hey, Doyle Brunson's son just finished in the third place here! Why isn't that the news? After all I hardly see his name mentioned anywhere else let alone seeing his final tables finishes - even on the WSOP. Maybe he isn not get that many to be interesting though.

Numbercrunching on the prizepool a bit closely, isn't it weird that the sixth place payed out 10x of the initial buy-in? Even the prize for the first place seems out of ordinary with that 23% (also Brunson have gotten less than 10%) IMO the numbers seems a bit off throughout.
