News broke that a scandalous robbery happened yesterday at the EPT Berlin. The tournament was taking place at the Grand Hyatt in Berlin and the crime resembled a scene out of a movie. Six men with masks and guns walked in holding machetes and guns to steal the prize money.
The robbery happened when there were only 24 players left in the tournament and they were trying to narrow the field down to the final table. To everyone’s surprise the group of men came into the first floor and took the prize money as it was placed in boxes next to the reception area.
Chaos reigned and all of the participants tried to escape. According to the tournament organizers the criminals managed to walk away with 800,000 Euros and ran away. The EPT Berlin gathered a field of 1000 players fighting for a 1 million Euros first prize.
