Michael Georgiou defeated Graeme Dott in the Coral Shoot Out final to land the title at the Watford Colosseum.
Georgiou landed his first victory in a ranking event by coming out on top in the one frame knockout tournament.
It was a tight final against Dott but Georgiou collected the win 67-56 by taking care of the pink after his Scottish opponent had missed a tricky chance to get the advantage.
Georgiou defeated Martin O'Donnell in the semi-finals, Zhang Yong in the quarters and Nigel Bond in the last 16 on his way to lifting the trophy.
"Everyone dreams of trophies when they are children so it's all been worth it," Georgiou from Forest Hill in London told ITV4.
"I enjoy the format, the crowd and the buzz but I didn't expect this."
Dott lost to Mark Williams in the final of last week's German Masters and was disappointed after missing out on a trophy in the last match once again.
"Two finals in two weeks is good but it’s always disappointing when you lose a final," the former world champion said.
"I’ll take the positives but just wish I landed a little bit different on the pink."
