PokerStars qualifier Matthew McDerra has emerged victorious from a 615-strong field to pocket a first prize payday of £74,000. After a lightning-quick start to the final table, in which six players were eliminated within the first three hours, McDerra and fellow PokerStars qualifier Matuesz Warowiec fought out a six-hour heads up battle.
