Did they ever catch the group that did a heist in Monaco recently? If not, I'd say the odds are pretty good that they are related. I guess event organiser's are going to have to rewiew their security and beef up measures.

Wow, shocking that it is especially in Germany. But it makes sense as this is like the biggest tournement ever played in Germany.

But as far as I'm informed nothing happenend to the player and play resumed some time after the incident.

damn, I was just thinking the other day how come these huge poker tournaments dont get robbed often and then boom I see this in the headlines. If I was at the tables I'd probably start moving peoples chips in my direction Smile Just kiddin

awesome (in a bad way of course). You'd think that a casino would have better security than just letting some guys barge in with a few guns and take it down. My money is on an inside job,

That, or some badbeated player was having its way

unbelievable, but if this tournament got that big and the security didn't then they were just asking for it. Probably a big advertising about the prize money in germany and someone got greedy.

This is another sign of how bad the global economic crisys is being world wyde. Can you imagine someone going to the point of planning to enter in an internacional event, covered by lots of TV's, just to pick a big bag full of money? It has to be desperate people! And positive analysts only point the resolution of the crisys to2013, now think what negative analysts say...

i doubt this has anything to do with the global crysis. desperate people go rob a gasstation or something. this guys had kalashnikovs (according to the witnesses).
they were professionells in my opinion...in and out.

Good no one belived the robbers were bluffing and played hero ... money is being printed new everyday.

Btw why is always surveillance cameras recording with worse quality than camera phones ???!!! Just look at the pictures of the robbers storming in. Confused

Doyle brunson would probably had remebered some good old times if he would have been there ...

I BET I KNOW WHO DID IT

check the players that went out in the tourney early, they wanted to win so bad and when they took that bad beat that took them out they went and got some friends to go still it, who else is really going to kno that much money would be there if they were not involved in poker somehow. thats my prediction

with chips all over and hands in progress, cards scattered how the heck they going to start up that soon after, good luck with mass confusion

i don't just understand how such a heist could happen in front of a national television, with million of viewers watching... it sucks... what a gutsy move by the perpetrators...

Yep it's been very clever because nowadays ... why to rob a bank if money is in the EPT? Unbelievebla at all ...

Wow! Better to take a gun to an EPT event, just in case... Cool

Seriously, must have been someone on the inside, unless the money is just lying there, displayed in full view, like at the end of the final table.
Security is surely going to be beffed up now.

I'm just wondering how they got the tournament strated properly again.
Chips all over the place! Confused

just unbelievable ! this world is crazy ! damned criminals ! why they don't go to work ! it's so vulgar ! what a world ! poor steals , rich steals , everyone steal ! sometimes i think i'm in minority !

But i think they should have a better security ! ... 800.000 € and no security ? too much light !
