Poker Tournament Robbed on Live TV!

If you’ve ever watched a poker tournament live on TV you’d know that they usually bring out the cash winnings and place it on the table.  A sort of “look what is at stake” type of gimmick. 

Well it was just a matter of time before someone schemed a robbery attempt to snatch that money.  Well it has finally happened.  At a PokerStars sponsored European Poker Tour event last Saturday in Berlin 6 armed gunmen entered the hotel where the poker tournament was being held and well……….”held up” the place.  It just so happens that the whole robbery was filmed on Live TV.  The gunmen made off with $1 million Euros which is a little over $1.3 million US. 

Regulators have commented that the issue itself is widespread, and it’s why more and more players are now resorting to playing poker online. It is safer, and you can usually use anonymous nicknames which provides an adder layer of security and safety to your online playing.

Watch the video below as the poker melee unfolds.
