Armed Heist Hits Berlin Poker Game

Four robbers dressed as employees and carrying guns crashed a poker tournament at a Berlin luxury hotel and walked away with part of the jackpot of $1.36 million. (The Wall Street Journal reports they took $136,200.) One account said the thieves carried machetes and hand grenades in addition to automatic weapons. Around 400 people were competing in the five-day affair organized by the European Poker Tour.
