and basically this was the reason I felt the need to have it confirmed. Surely can't be much of an upside to having your name constantly mentioned in this negative publicity.

True, the only upside I can see is the almighty dollar

Looks like they are being played on by Hastings recently.

You watch all you like m8.

We could ask him but he won't reply. There is a thread on 2+2 about it which he reads several times daily.


http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...&postcount=104

So why ask him on here when he has said nothing since the start of this account actually being a winner? Why hasn't he replied on 2+2? Why the silence?

Cause he has done something retarded and wrong despite working in similar businesses. Anyone who isn't a retarded lick arse fan boy knows that he is a lick arse fan boy himself. If the account is him, fair play to him, keep winning but he probably jumped at the chance to sell his account to someone he wants to be.

Silence is deafening.

I stopped caring what strangers on the internet said or thought about me many years ago; otherwise I probably would've jumped off the deep end by now. What I do care about is something like this being a major story in the poker world at a time in which the WSOP is in full force and we should be trying to promote and grow the game of poker, rather than drag it through the mud. Think what you want about me, but one thing I have in common with most people reading this is that we love the game of poker and want to be able to play it freely in the comfort of our own homes. I'm moving back to PA soon to play 400/800 mix live and be closer to Sonya's and my parents, and state regulation of online poker would be a nice cherry on top.

I think especially those of us who are professional poker players should be taking steps to try to promote and grow the game, rather than feeling sorry for themselves because Cardrunners was founded, Black Friday happened, everybody is too good now, etc. With enough hard work, I truly believe that just about anyone (at least anyone smart enough to be browsing 2+2) can make a living playing poker in 2015. I think it's unfortunate that certain people have been on bad runs and choose to take their frustrations out outwardly rather than by trying to self improve, but I get it, it's certainly not always easy. I did not turn a profit in 2 of the previous 3 years, but with an improved mindset, an amazing woman in my life, and a strong work ethic, I've gotten my game back to where it needs to be.

This will be my last post in this thread. If you'd like to discuss further with me I'm just a PM away.

Brian

My favourite post in that 2+2 thread .....



Re: Brian Hastings accused of Multi-Accounting as "NoelHayes"

He must have known he would get busted since pros would recognize his play and an old businessman wont play at this skill level. So since cheating will be a big hit to his reputation he probably decided to not hang around at the poker scene anymore on beforehand and thus might as well book a winning online while its still possible at high stakes.

Hastings post might be my favorite in the history of 2+2. So arrogant and condescending without actually saying anything at all. Could easily be written as, 'Haters gonna hate, rubbing money on my titties.'

Acc. gets outed as Brian Hastings on twitter. He apparently told some of his friends it was him but it was not common knowledge to most regs.

His is response to accusations was basically this:

Maybe Noel was Stinger88 all these years.

Hastings is a fat nerd. Surely people have more important things to cause a fuss about unless you unknowingly played high stakes mix games against the account.

why would you sell an account that's your actual name?

that's what I couldn't understand. If the screen-name was PokerGuy123 there's a good chance Noel's name would never have been mentioned.

Also, absolutely lol-worthy response from Hastings.

You would have to wonder why this is has come to such fruition now,

Imagine the people who made bracelet bets with hastings, what exactly did they think hastings was doing, taking over 100k in equity in bracelet bets... jerking off in the pool, obviously he was working on his game,
The same guys who laugh, at the stories of legendary prop bets between poker players
when some legend has rigged the game in their favour, have now gotten a taste to what it feels like on the other end, they are hiding behind the facade of MA while obviously wrong does not make up for the fact they did not do their due diligence before trying to make some easy money on a player who in their minds was not that good

I don't think the two are as related as some people are making out. Hastings allegedly multi-accounting and Hastings making bracelet bets are separate issues. As someone mentioned in the twoplustwo thread, unless someone explicitly said "Have you been playing high stakes mixed games online? If so, then I am not taking the bet" then it's fair game. The people who have the right to feel most aggrieved are those that played against NoelHayes and did not know it was Hastings playing on the account. Those who made the bracelet bets have little to no case imo.

I fail to see the problem here. If I set up a poker account and pick Phil Babb as my user name - are people going to be that annoyed when they find out that they are not actually playing against Phil Babb?

Or did I miss something.?

EDIT: I see he is accused of multi accounting - correct? Is it just by chance that he's using the Noel Hayes username as one of his accounts?

No, if you look back at old HHs on boards you can see bcb used that SN back in the day.

Hastings plays on Stars as $tinger88 and on FT as LucLongley. He went missing for a while, and then the NoelHayes and BigNittyBanker accounts, went from playing all low stakes games, to playing all the high stakes cash games and the big buyin SCOOPs across Stars and FT.

Seemingly, Hastings told some of his high stakes friends that he was using the account himself, but he never told others. David 'Bakes' Baker being one that was left out of the loop, and he started all the uproar) with these 2 tweets

Oh

Well in that case:



Any response from the man himself (BCB)?
