Biography

Brian Hastings is an American poker player. During his career he has won six World Series of Poker bracelets and amassed over $4.8 million in live earnings as of August 2022..

Poker Achievements

In 2012, Hastings won his first WSOP bracelet in Event #12: $10,000 Heads-Up after defeating Jason Mo heads-up. This victory earned him $371,498.

Three years later, and after loading up on bracelet prop bets, Hastings won his second bracelet in Event #27: $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship for $239,518.

“I came into the summer with high expectations, obviously,” he said at the time. “I worked on my game a lot in the last year, and I also have a great girlfriend who I started dating six months ago. I just thought I was in a really good place where I could come here every day and play my A-game.”

His A-Game continued, with Hastings picking up a second bracelet of the year in what was a remarkable 2015. He won Event #39: $1,500 Six-Max 10-Game for $133,403, topping a field of 380.

In 2015, Hastings announced that he would be quitting poker as a full-time profession.

Despite this, Hastings would add a fourth bracelet in 2018 in Event #76: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Following the coronavirus, Hastings would win a fifth WSOP bracelet, becoming only the 29th player to achieve that feat. He won Event #73: $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo Championship. In 2022, he made it two in two years with victory in Event #31: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship.

"It's awesome," said Hastings when asked how the victory felt. "I mean, I really love the World Series every year. It's a lot of fun just trying to compete in all these events against great players; it's an honor to be in that kind of company".

Playing Against Isildur

In December 2009, Hastings won $4.2 million in a single session playing against Viktor Blom aka Isildur1. He regularly tussled with the online poker legend, winning another $1.5 million in early 2010.
