Watch your back, David Vamplew.

Niall Farrell is coming for your title as Scotland's leading live tournament money winner.

The redheaded Scotsman put another flag on his already extensive Hendon Mob resume by claiming the partypoker WPT Caribbean title tonight in Punta Cana.

Starting the heads-up against Troy Quenneville with an 8.1m-1.5m chip edge, it only took one hand for Farrell to put him away and pocket the $335,000 winner's share.

That not only bumped him up to just under $3m in career earnings - and just $900k behind Vamplew for Scotland's all-time bragging rights - it also made him a two-tour champion.

It's pretty heady territory for a guy who used to toil at Carphone Warehouse.

Another Contender for WPT Championship

The "other" tour Farrell is referring to is the soon-to-be-defunct European Poker Tour, where he claimed the EPT Malta main event title just last year.

2-Tour Champ.

The EPT only has the upcoming Prague festival remaining before being mothballed in favor of the new PokerStars Global Championships & Festivals.

However you cut it it's an impressive accomplishment to win on two of the world's biggest poker tours.

In this one Farrell topped a comparatively unknown final six to earn the cash, the trophy and a $15,000 seat in next spring's WPT Championship.

Other notables to make the money in this one included Keven Stammen (8th - $42,000), Manig Loeser, Ari Engel, Chris Hunichen, Ankush Mandavia and Kristen Bicknell.
