A total of 391 players participated in the tournament, and in the Heads-Up play Hastings outlasted Griffin Malatino, who took home $117,300 after finishing in second place.
"I won!!!! 213k plus TWO trophies, thanks for all the support everyone!", Hastings commented on his Twitter right after winning.
According to HendonMob.com, Hastings has now almost $300,000 in live tournament earnings.
