Brian Hastings Wins First WSOP Bracelet
His victory in the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em World Championship was worth $371,498, but Hastings says this win was about more than just the money.
"I've had much bigger scores than this online," Hastings says "But there's only
one gold bracelet, and this means more than the money to me."
Hastings has scooped at least two $1,000,000 plus pots in online cash games and has several six-figure online tournament scores. But despite his impressive online results he had yet to make a name for himself in the live poker arena.His two previous cashes in WSOP-related events came from an eighth-place
finish last year at WSOP Europe and an 11th-place finish at West Palm Beach during last season’s WSOP Circuit.
