Brian Hastings

Chris Smith open-jammed for roughly 1,000,000 from early position and action folded to Brian Hastings who called off his stack holding less from the big blind.

Brian Hastings: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Chris Smith: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Hasting was racing for his tournament and fell behind after the {a-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Hearts} flop gave Smith top two-pair.

The {10-Clubs} turn left Hastings needing a nine, but the river came the {a-Spades}, improving Smith to a full house and ending the four-time WSOP bracelet winners tournament in 18th place $41,420.
