Event 1: Hastings Takes One Out

$560 Buy-In Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 7: Blinds 250/500/50 ante


Brian Hastings is one of the most accomplished players in the field today. With nearly $1 million in live tournament winnings and a World Series of Poker bracelet under his belt, Hastings is no stranger to poker success and is off to a good start today.

With the board reading Ac9d4c7d, Hastings and an opponent go back and forth before Hastings’ opponent is all in for about 15,000 with As9h for top two pair. Hastings, though, turns over 4s4h for a set of fours and holds up through the Qd river to score the elimination.

Hastings is up to about 65,000 after the hand.
