ST. LOUIS MAN WINS SECOND $2,000 IN RETURN TO POOH'S CORNER
Going back to Pooh’s Corner in St. Louis brought a second $2,000 prize to one St. Louis man. Armat "Dewey" Duhart, 55, of St. Louis (63129**) said he won $2,000 on a six-spot Club Keno game on Friday. He decided to stop back in Pooh’s Corner, 6023 Virginia in St. Louis, before lunch on Monday to say "hello" and "thanks," and while he was there he played the same numbers and won $2,000 a second time.
"I only played keno maybe a couple of other times before," said Duhart, who is a manufacturer’s representative for packaging equipment.
Duhart said he and his wife, Susan, plan to put the winnings in the bank for now. They may use some of it later to take a vacation.
Club Keno began on May 28. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing.
