World Poker Tour event robbery

Filed in: culture, games, Tue, Jul 20 2004 09:23 PT

The French journal Libération reports that the World Poker Tour event at the Aviation Club de Paris was the target of a robbery Tuesday afternoon during the final. The thieves made off with 76,000 euros, made it out to their motorbikes, then realized they’d lost the keys. They ended up stealing a refrigerator truck to make their getaway.

I wonder if that’ll make the WPT coverage. Probably not. It was a little bit of the “far west”, as the French say, right on the Champs Elysées.

Update: Here’s an English-language version of the story.
