Armed robbers strike EPT Berlin

Saturday, 6 March 2010

There was pandemonium at the EPT Berlin Main Event today after a gang of six masked men stormed the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Details are still sketchy but a statement from PokerStars said "An armed robbery by 5-6 men took place today at EPT Berlin. Nobody was seriously injured. We hope to restart all events at 4pm local time. A police investigation is underway. If you have video footage or photographs that could help the police, please contact the EPT organizers as soon as possible."

Thankfully it looks as if nobody was seriously hurt in the raid. You can see a clip from the EPT livestream of the incident by clicking here.

The Main Event has just resumed but other side events continuing later.

We will of course bring you news of any developments as soon as we have them.
