    Bran Hastings latest in long line of shady poker pros to quit poker due to it being "unhealthy"

    First we had Haseeb Qureshi, veteran of countless online poker scandals, quitting professional poker and claiming to give away his money to charity.

    Then we had Prahlad Friedman, hypocritical limousine liberal who knowingly promoted the UB cheating/scam poker site AFTER the scandal, quitting poker to become a record producer.

    Now we have Brian Hastings, infamous high stakes multi-accounter, quitting poker because it is unhealthy and depresses him.

    He may not be fully quitting, but at least he's "moving on from poker as a full time job", and has started a new company called "UniTea". UniTea is a tea company he created. He claims it is going to "start with one retail store and grow". Good luck with that one. Right now, all it seems to have is a Twitter account: https://twitter.com/uniteaFL

    His mostly self-pitying blog describes his ups and downs in poker, and seems rife with a lot of excuse-making for his various missteps.

    Most interestingly, he reveals that several times during his poker career, even when successful, he became depressed and retreated from wherever he was living back to his parents' house in Pennsylvania.

    He also revealed that he lost 70% of his bankroll from 2012-2014, partially due to his bad investment in DFS site "Draft Day", which has since closed its doors.

    Oddly, his Twitter right now is filled with lots of tweets complaining that he keeps getting "shut out" of six-handed live poker games in Hollywood, Florida. He currently lives in that area.

    He also recently tweeted this:

    Oh, I thought it was gone.

    I imagine that DraftDay spent too much money advertising and it didn't convert.

    They even wasted $500/month on Donkdown for some time.

    He trashed Donald Trump for months and said he was terrified of him winning. Was he worried that Trump was going to send his black girlfriend to the cotton fields? And then he said he wanted to go long gold, short the dollar and short stocks. Complete opposite happened. No wonder the kid went broke!

    There is no way that Brian's small white cock is going to satisfy a creature like that.
