A prize pool of £16,100 was up for grabs in the penultimate leg of the Sky Poker Tour which took place at Les Croupiers in Cardiff over the weekend.
In the end it was Yorkshire youngster Jamie Hurst who took the honours, beating a field of Sky Poker qualifiers as well as TV regulars Julian Thew, Tony 'Tikay' Kendall, James Hartigan and former member of this parish Dave Bland.Hurst wasn't the biggest winner of the day though. With play three handed a deal was agreed with chip leader Carl Taylor, who was playing in only his second live tournament, taking £4,000 with Hurst and Dan Royle each guaranteed £3,000. They then played on for the remaining £300.Taylor was the first to go, leaving Royle and Hurst to battle it out for the extra cash and bragging rights. The Sheffield Wednesday fan sealed the deal soon afterwards, holding J5 on a Jack high board to win his first live tournament.Nottingham's Dusk Till Dawn will be the venue for the Sky Poker Tour Grand Final on 10th September.
