Young, who plays online as 'chicknmelt', worked his way through a field of more than 200 runners to take the £5,600 first prize, sealing victory after defeating Steve Wright heads up (no, not that one).The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1 Andy Young chicknmelt £56002 Steve Wright Supersteve £38003 Niall Bradley david666 £24504 William De Ritter Wilhelm £14505 Chris Pillay Kristofer £11006 Barry Wright whipit £9007 Abdul Miah MiahStar £7008 Nev Osman jigsaw222 £5509 Vikrum Mehta VIK1 £400The Sky Poker Tour returns in the new year with stops announced for Aspers Newcastle, Sporting Emporium, Dublin, Broadway Casino, Birmingham, Aspers, Stratford (London) and Dusk Till Dawn (Grand Final).Qualifiers will be on the site shortly.
