Brian Hastings took down the second World Series of Poker bracelet of his career earlier tonight after taking down the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud World Championship for $231,518.
91 players took part in the event, which ended up creating a total prize pool of $855,400. As you can imagine, there was no "dead money" in this event, as the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Joe Cassidy, Scott Clements and Bertrand Grospellier all elected to take part, just to name a few.
The final table ended up finishing out like this:
1 - Brian Hastings, $239,518
2 - Scott Clements, $148,001
3 - Dan Kelly, $92,691
4 - Chris George, $67,114
5 - Oxana Cummings, $52,453
6 - Harley Thrower, $41,829
7 - Mikhail Semin, $33,967
8 - Max Pescatori, $28,031
As mentioned, this was the second World Series of Poker bracelet of Hastings' career - he also took down the $10,000 Heads-Up No Limit Hold'em event at the 2012 World Series of Poker for $371,498.
With his victory, Hastings (at the age of just 26), now has two World Series of Poker bracelets, seven WSOP final table appearances and 14 World Series of Poker cashes. Hastings now has over $1 million ($1,139,276) in World Series of Poker earnings.
According to an article on WSOP.com (link below), Hastings had some "substantial" bracelet bets with other poker pros that he will now be able to cash in on. According to the article, Hastings is set to receive "about twice what the top prize money was for this event".
That's a nice night of work and one of Hastings' biggest single night wins since he put a $4 million beatdown on Viktor "Isildur1" Blom a number of years ago.
