Brian Hastings has already made 2015 a summer to remember, grabbing his second gold bracelet and $239,518 in winnings in the $10,000 Stud Championship and collecting on a pile of prop bets in the process. He's on the verge of adding to that tally in Event #39: $1,500 Six-Max 10-Game, where he leads nine remaining players after two days of play.

Hastings' 651,000 stack gives him a sizable lead over second-place Tim Reusch (434,000). Hastings' fellow bracelet winners Owais Ahmed (383,500) and Todd Brunson (191,500) also bagged. Alexey Makarov (352,000), Mike Watson (277,000), Eric Wasserson (255,000), Rostislav Tsodikov (206,500), and Dan Matsuzuki (96,000) are the other players to advance to Day 3.

A total of 89 players started the day. The money bubble burst when 42 players remained. Matt Glantz (10th place), Bruno Fitoussi (12th), Dan Kelly (15th), Phil Hellmuth (17th), Eli Elezra (24th), Jeff Lisandro (26th), and Daniel Negreanu (41st) were some of the players cashing in the tournament.

Glantz got sent home in a brutal spot that powered Hastings to his lead just as the night neared its end. The two were playing PLO, and saw a {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} flop. Glantz barreled all three streets as the {7-Spades} and {10-Spades} hit, and Hastings shoved on the river. Glantz called with {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, but Hastings had hit a better boat with {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}.

Day 3 is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, so check back and see if Hastings can put together a summer for the ages.
