Two guns beats four aces

Two guns beats four aces: armed robbers hit Paris poker tournament

Yet another story worthy of a movie. Two armed men staged a heist on the final day at the World Poker Tour Tournament on the Champs-Elysee in Paris. As 20 players were sitting at their table, they forced them to lie on the ground as they made off with 76,000 euros.

In a somewhat farcical turn of events, it appears they then lost the keys of their getaway bikes and had to stole a nearby truck - which they dumped later.

Seems like all this poker publicity has its negative impact as well
