Brian Hastings Wins 2015 WSOP $10k Seven Card Stud Bracelet

Brian Hastings Wins 2015 WSOP $10k Seven Card Stud BraceletThree years after taking down the 2012 WSOP $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em event for $371,498, US pro Brian Hastings has added further to his WSOP bracelet tally by wining the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship for $239,518. On his way to victory Hastings overcame a field of 91 players over three days, after which 26 year-old commented:
“This tournament is more meaningful because it’s what a lot of the older, more established players played for many years. Anytime you win, it’s feels good.”
Amongst the notable pros entering and cashing in at the event was David Steicke in 14th ($17,364), David Chiu in 11th ($19,965), and Ralph Porter in 10th ($23,463).
The final table featured a packed line-up, too, and after starting the final stretch in prime position, Brian Hastings progressed all the way through to three-handed play, where Scott Clements eliminated Dan Kelly in 3rd ($92,691) to go heads-up against Hastings for the bracelet. Hastings, however, still enjoyed a roughly 2-to-1 chip advantage over his remaining opponent, and eventually managed to consign Clements to a runner-up finish worth $148,001 to claim the WSOP title.
While the $239,518 first place prize represents the second biggest score of his tournament career, Brian Hastings said that he also won around twice that figure through a side bet, although he wouldn’t name his unfortunate victim. Commenting further, Hastings explained:
“I came into this summer with high expectations obviously. I decided to bet a lot on myself. I worked on my game a lot in the last year. I also have a great girlfriend who I started dating six months ago and I just thought I was in a really good place where I could come here every day and play my A game.”
Final Table Payouts:
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 John Thrower – $41,829
7 Mikhail Semin – $33,967
8 Max Pescatori – $28,031
