‘Wait a Minute, There’s a Winner and it’s Me!’: Maple Ridge Pacific Hold’Em Poker Player Can’t Believe his $67K Hand

December 13, 2021


Richard Webb is one step closer to his dream golf vacation in Scotland, but the Maple Ridge man almost missed out on his $67,360 win from playing Pacific Hold’Em Poker in a October 16, 2021 draw. 

“It’s funny because I didn’t think I won anything,” said Webb who purchased the winning ticket at Samz Neighbourhood Pub in Port Coquitlam. 

Webb decided to check his ticket again and found out he had in fact won. 

“I had to stop and think…and realized, wait a minute there is a winner and it’s me!”

“It feels surprising! I am still overwhelmed by it all,” said Webb.
