Aaron Webber was an octochamp in Series 56.

He began his career by defeating Pam Smith on 23 April 2007 to take the champion's chair. With three centuries to his name, Webber's 773 points secured him the #1 seed spot for the series finals.

Webber met Stewart Gordon in the quarter-finals. Webber looked to have secured the victory when declaring the final numbers game spot-on when 11 points ahead, however a mistake in his working let Gordon back into the game. When neither player could turn IDEALSNOG into ALONGSIDE in the allotted time, Webber just scraped into the semi-finals. Anita Freeland was next, in another game that went to a crucial conundrum. Webber had the deficit this time, however that was academic as Freeland turned IDLEDONNA into DANDELION in just 2 seconds to take the grand final berth for herself.

An early version of the bracket for Championship of Champions XIII indicated Webber as a potential participant, with Steven Briers as his scheduled first-round opponent. However, he declined his invitation to the tournament, and was replaced by a Series 59 quarter-finalist, Debbi Flack.
