After hours of questioning, during which he denied all involvement in the theft, he was released. Some sources state that he was previously involved in a Berlin casino robbery six years ago."EPT events are run by local organizers. In the case of the EPT Berlin event, it was the Spielbank Berlin. Hence, they are responsible for the security team,” was PokerStars’s only comment on the unsavoury events that tainted an otherwise successful inaugural Berlin EPT.The event, won by Kevin MacPhee for €1,000,000, was interrupted on Day 3 by armed robbers who stole a sum now thought to be in the region of €240,000.They were bearing weapons but no one was injured in the theft. Berlin police state that the robbers left “mountains” of evidence behind but so far no one has been charged with any offence.
