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.
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...

Terrible but clever why rob a bank when the EPT's in town
Yep it's been very clever because nowadays ... why to rob a bank if money is in the EPT? Unbelievebla at all ...
| IslandJack||07/03/2010 09:49:40 GMT|
| Wow! Better to take a gun to an EPT event, just in case... |
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!

| 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 !
| DAGOR||07/03/2010 12:42:03 GMT|
| Hello everybody!|
is clearly incredible story. But predictable as much money and so little security too tempting for thieves. It is much easier than banks.
Coming very soon, new post lol!
| HsH80||07/03/2010 13:09:54 GMT|
| I've read that the outnumbered security managed to save 600.000€...hope the robbers will be caught soon

| That is terrible, where were the security guards? Is this the first time it happened at a major poker event? More security.
| SuperNoob||07/03/2010 15:04:51 GMT|
| well its really a very sick incident and horror for the organisers and the casino where it was taking place.|
they should hav proper security for such big events so that these things don't happen again.

Unbelieveble: I was following it on an italian blog and I was astonished to read this news. Only one question: sholudn't have been guaranteed players safety ??
Millions of dollars and i didn´t see security. I watch the images and it was really sick
| Davoodoo||07/03/2010 17:37:48 GMT|
| new clips of the chaos ...|
wtf is security doing, dancing with them and throwing things ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUi9SWPAusc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biLQ12VPv9Q those machetes really look mean
Not a gun in sight anywhere imo ...
| MARCEL123||08/03/2010 00:57:53 GMT|
| i heard this first on youtube from players twittering it live from their EPT seat!|
first i thoughd it was a joke, but soon i found out if was serious.
first question in my mind was:
why dont you hire proper security when dealing with those amounts?
| mazas||08/03/2010 13:38:03 GMT|
| not 1-st time they use it dont forgot in Malta couple weeks ago now there so they start scary us |
so they must dont have real money in the real game just who win the tour must all moneys send to bank account
because the same situation can easy be repeated in future
good luck all

| I heard now there saying it was $300,000 plus and a Inside Job since that was the time the most money would be at the cashier
| sensao87||09/03/2010 07:08:45 GMT|
| and the security what happened :S
| leroi21||09/03/2010 17:18:54 GMT|
| wow we can say that their are pretty intelligent cause where a big amount of money can be rob bank casino and poker tournament but the tournament was not in a casino if it was in a casino that was not possible
| Airas||10/03/2010 10:41:42 GMT|
| Hahahahha, jesus christ this is funny stuff. The greatest ever
| Kristan||10/03/2010 10:50:06 GMT|
| Wow. Amazing that THIS kind of events does not have a full security measures! Best players all over the world , millions in tables and this is how they are secured ! Very poor
| Byzza21||12/03/2010 12:19:01 GMT|
| It is unbelievable that this could happen at this level...very poor security and it also may be a inside job...
| Scottie117||17/03/2010 08:51:45 GMT|
| The one securityman they had was phenomenal.|
The police now got one of them. Its the one who was hold by the security guy.
He gave himself up the police.
| azraell84||22/03/2010 14:29:24 GMT|
| LOL superb security ^^|
