European Poker Tour Event Robbed at Gun Point

Poker players  participating in day 4 of the European Poker Tour in Berlin reportedly rushed under tables at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin moments ago as EPT Berlin was raided by five masked men at about  2pm CET ( that’s 8am Eastern).

There are reports of the men being armed by guns, as well as contradicting reports of them having knives, not guns. Tables were turned upside down as the players crowded underneath. Bomb threats were heard by the poker players.  There are reports of minor injuries caused by the rush for safety. Information is scarce. As we hear more we’ll share it here.

Things are said to be calming down. “EPT Berlin was raided by masked men w/ weapons. We’re all ok now. Finally functioning almost normally now that the adrenaline has worn off.” Said Kristy Arnette on Twitter following the incident.

The EPT Makes a statement:

“An armed robbery by six men took place today at EPT Berlin. Nobody was seriously injured. We hope to re-start all events at 4pm local time. A police investigation is under way. If you have video footage or photographs that could help the police, please contact the EPT organizers as soon as possible.”
