A poker tournament in Berlin held in a hotel has been robbed by four armed gunmen who reportedly stole more than €800,000 ($1m)
The robbers burst their way into the hotel threatening security personal with hand guns and a machete. Many of the hotel staff and poker players took refuge under tables and tried to escape.
"Several masked, armed individuals entered the Grand Hyatt Hotel and fled with a haul of money," said police spokeswoman Heidi Vogt
"They screamed 'armed robbery'," said poker player Tobias Reinkemeier "We didn't know what was going on. Then there was panic and everyone jumped underneath tables before they tried to escape through the emergency exit."
The attack involved 6 individuals, 4 who stormed the hotel and stole the cash and 2 others who kept watch outside. Images of the attack were also broadcast on n-tv television station.
