Brian “$tinger 88” Hastings struck again in the high stakes games last night by winning over $100k.

The U.S.-born poker pro, who is currently living in Canada to play online poker, recorded 424 hands of PLO in some of the biggest games on PokerStars.

Hastings essentially split his action between two $50/$100 Heads-Up PLO tables against Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane and one table of $200/$400 6-Max PLO against PepperoniF, zivziv and mikki696.

No one could slow Hastings down last night and he booked a $51k win in the 6-Max game and then went on to take Cochrane for $73k.

Hastings finished with $125k in profit on the evening and is now up nearly $500k since moving to Vancouver in August to play online poker.

The next biggest winner last night was Kanu7 who won $81,983 in 1,292 hands of No-Limit Hold’em.

It’s rare when the high stakes No-Limit Hold’em games run, as most high stakes pros prefer PLO, but Kanu7 burned takechip, Asprin1, sat1337en in various Hold’em games.

The win boosts Kanu7’s profits this year to over $250,000. Some of the other big winners last night included koncert888 (+$56k), Gozoboro (+$36k) and H@??INGGOL (+$31k).

On the other side was Rui “PepperoniF” Cao who got absolutely lit up in the $200/$400 6-Max game last night. Cao lost a total of $111k in just 61 hands.

Fortunately for Cao he’s one of the few players that can easily absorb that kind of hit with $1.1 million in online poker profit this year.

Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane also had a miserable night as he lost $105k, a huge portion of which was to Hastings.

Also in the losing column last night were insyder19 (-$57k), zivziv (-$34k) and takechip ($33k).
