Brian Hastings vs Brit Rail part 2Earlier in the series, bracelet winner Brian Hastings did not endear himself to British poker fans after he criticised their trademark rowdy rails. Well it looks like the feud has started up again, but this time it was started by the Brits, who were railing Chris Brammer in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Six Max.
After being made the subject of a British style football chant, Hastings took to Twitter to air his grievances, and soon had the Isildur1 hand history allegations thrown back in his face.
Don't expect this feud to end anytime soon....
C**t has no business being said in a public place, especially around women. Pretty embarrassing to have to associate with people like that.— Brian Hastings (@brianchastings) July 6, 2012
Pretty sick and tired of people spewing false info about me. Never shared a single HH, this has been explained. Slander/libel is not cool.— Brian Hastings (@brianchastings) July 6, 2012
Puchkov poised to make historyHe may not be commanding the attention that Phil Ivey is getting this series for a string of big results, but Russian player Konstantin Puchkov is on the brink of breaking a major WSOP record.
The 2010 bracelet winner has already equaled the all time cashes in one series record with 10 cashes so far, sharing the record with Nikolay Evdakov from 2008. Tomorrow he could break the record in the $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball.
14 places get paid, and Konstantin is currently sitting at the top of the chip counts with 54 left, in this penultimate event of the WSOP.

Negreanu handed $125kHe might not be enjoying his best WSOP, but Daniel Negreanu cannot claim to be running bad this series, not when complete strangers hand him six figure sums for no reason.
Only in poker....
