Ben Young took the blue riband Main Event, outlasting a 425 runner field to take home the £9,000 first prize plus a seat in the GUKPT Grand Final worth £3,300 courtesy of APAT sponsors Betfair Poker. Heads up play was an all Welsh affair with Young seeing off Stephen Roderick after 20 minutes of two-handed play. The final hand virtually played itself with Young claiming the title after his flush beat Roderick's set.In addition to the Main Event there were a number of other titles up for grabs in Nottingham. Dave Howard took the heads up championship, beating Germany's Michael Koenig in the final with Ian Thompson taking the Stud championship beating David Llewellyn heads up. Colin Young pipped Andy Overton to the six-max No Limit Hold'em title with Dutchman Max Kruis taking down the PLO event after beating Craig Johnson. The Welsh contingent took the prestigious team title, beating Canada in an extremely tight finish by only a single point. Northern Ireland finished third, just a point ahead of the fourth placed finishers from Spain. France were fifth with Holland taking sixth place.
