Brian Hastings wins WSOP Event #12

Poker pro Brian Hastings has won his first WSOP bracelet after winning Event #12 of the WSOP. #12 was a $10,000 Heads up NL event and 152 players registered to compete. Hastings is just 23 years old and has already earned a reputation as a top poker pro. Hastings has won millions during his short career and now he can add a WSOP to his long list of achievements.

During the event, Hastings had a first round bye so after this he had to win the next seven matches to be able to earn the event. Hastings defeated Jim Rumptz, Emil Patel, Tommy Vedes, Amritraj Singh and Jeffery Gross before making it to the semi final round.

During the semi final rounds, Hastings took on Tommy Chen while Brock Parker faced Jason Mo. Both matches managed to end at the same time, around 3pm, and Hastings and Mo would earn the two final spots in the competition.

The final heads up play match would last about two hours before Hastings would claim his first WSOP bracelet. Hastings quickly earned a nice chip lead with K-4 and it would take 90 minutes before Hastings would take the final hand.

Hastings commented on the final match by stating: “(Mo) was tough. He was one of the toughest opponents I played for sure. I though he played a good game, if anything I’d say he’s stronger deeper than he is shorter. I don’t think he did anything badly shorter, but you could just tell it was not his thing and he doesn’t play it much.”

Hastings now moves up in the WSOP Player of the Year race and he commented on what the WSOP bracelet win means to him by stating: “I mean, my biggest days online are a bit bigger than this, but this is still no joke. It’s one of the bigger winning days I’ve had in my life. It feels great. I think the bracelet means more than the money to me honestly.”
