An over the board IM and ICCF GM, Hebert finished 1st-4th in 2007 and won the 2009 and 1978 Canadian Championships, respectively, and tied 1st-3rd in the 2002 Canadian Open. He was the Canadian Junior Champion in 1976 and tied 1st-2nd the following year.

Hebert has played as high as second board at seven Olympiads between 1978-2002 and scored 37.5 points in 72 team games. His most recent major team event was Bled Olympiad (2002) as second reserve (coach/captain) and is registered on Canada's top board at the World team (50+) Championship at Dresden in June, 2016, but was their only team member to finish with a disappointing(3) 3.5 points after 9 rounds in eight of his played games.
