The APAT English Amateur Poker Championship took place at the G Casino in Luton over the weekend and in the end it was Todd Wood who had most reason to celebrate.

The Birmingham man outlasted a 176-runner field to pocket the first prize of £3,300. Woods went into the the final table with the chip lead and put his big stack to good use with a string of eliminations. He also got a little bit of luck when needed, spiking two pair with J8 to send Colin McCarthy and his pocket kings to the rail in 3rd place.

The end, when it came, was a classic race with Woods' pocket Jacks winning a race against runner up Ian Burnett's KQ.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1st Tod Wood £3,300
2nd Ian Burnett £2,100
3rd Colin McCarthy £1,200
4th James Edwards £600
5th Michael Martin £600
6th Joe Legge £600 7th Paul Petcher £600
8th Gary Haselgrove £600
9th Philip Mildon £600
10th Brett Pinder £600
