Brian "$tinger" Hastings has been brushing aside all competition on PokerStars
during the last few days, thanks to a couple of short but very lucrative PLO sessions.
The American pro, who has also been extremely active on the European live tournament schedule over the past few months, started out by taking home close to $190,000 on Tuesday, continuing his good run yesterday with a new $145,000 win.
The two winning sessions will bring Hastings total profits for the past two days to $330,000, also making him the biggest winner in that period.
