The first person Hendry called after finding out about his spectacular win was his girlfriend.

“I told her to meet me at home because I had a surprise,” said Hendry.

“She was excited and gave me a big kiss,” he said.

Hendry is planning to purchase a new motorcycle, go on a vacation and put some money in the bank.
