Brian Hastings is retiring from poker

Your blind arrogance and failure to take full responsibility for your shady actions will not be missed. Good riddance.

Re: Brian Hastings is retiring from poker

I expect a lot worst from what the OP and two person ahead of me were saying. Dude came out a lot better and pretty humble. He probably steal +ev when other highstakes player would do certain action if they knew it was him but it seem like he wasn't being malicious if he were trying to tell other in those game it was him. I think if anything maybe a little naive in his thought that cause him to make bad decision.

Re: Brian Hastings is retiring from poker

While he wasn't perfect he's done what 80%(multi account, vpn) of American pros have done at least a few times since Black Friday. No reason to hate him imo, he at least admitted to it, unlike other lunatics who bash him for it and do the exact same thing.

Studying/analyzing hands with other players on an opponent is A ok with me. Anyone who thinks otherwise hates life.

He hasn't said he's retiring from poker. He's just stopped playing full time.
Known tealeaf starts a tea company. Figures.

After reading that blog entry, I guess it'd be fair to say my hatred for this man has intensified by quite a bit.

Re: Brian Hastings is retiring from poker

My amateur psychology assessment would suggest hes still playing the victim somewhat and hasn't gotten over the haters, easy to slip into depression with that mindset i reckon. I Guess excessive money doesn't buy happiness it would seem...

Re: Brian Hastings is retiring from poker

He became a millionaire off poker... Who gives a f how he got there... He played on stars while in America why would you f ng care... If I lived in US I would be vpn ing on stars all the time... If you aren't then you are an idiot.. Him and his boys collected hands and studied him and destroyed him for 4.2 milly in 4 hours... Some say cheater I say well played ...

Poker is about money and Hastings beat the game for millions and for that Respect

Re: Brian Hastings is retiring from poker

*yawn*

Everyone has to retire to get some extra publicity to feed their egos.

Mike McDonald, Shaun Deeb, Fedor Holz, and now Brian Hastings.

Who gives a ****. All 4 of these people have 'retired' from poker.

Stop promoting these idiots.

Agreed but if he really stays away from poker for a decent amount of time this should change. Might have to go down before he goes back up. The HS poker community evolved into one giant fked up slippery slope. I'd imagine in terms of shady behavior EV Brian has lost considerably (no the HH db was not agregious nor was it responsible for $4.2M) and it's tough to shake that, especially when once trusted personal relationships are at play. Time & space helps.
