Armed Robbery at EPT Berlin

Apparently there was an armed robbery at the EPT Berlin event on Saturday.

The EPT later released the following 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.

This has to be a first for major tournament poker. Play has since resumed. With 21 remaining, Kevin MacPhee is the chip leader.
