Yep this is gonna sucks remembered the last time there was an event and there was theft going all around and this is going to brings negativity to the poker world and people will start not coming to the tournament like the pros and so on. Because the thief are targeting themselves because they have the money. The organizers should tighten the security!

The hotels seems to be pretty bad.

I mean, it can happen sometimes, but 3 times in a short time...

Such large events always attract all sort of scammers and cons into play, it's innevitable...

Poker players are probably good targets.

They are young and they have a lot of money.
