Here's the Plot of Your Next Big Caper Novel

Armed robbers raid poker tournament - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): "Armed robbers have struck at Germany's largest poker tournament, stealing money and injuring gamblers.

The masked gang burst into the Grand Hyatt hotel in central Berlin, where the tournament was taking place, threatening security staff and prompting a brief panic, police spokeswoman Heidi Vogt told AFP.

Berlin's Tageszeitung newspaper reported on its website that six raiders armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles and grenades made off with 800,000 euros ($1,200,000)."
