Berlin Poker Robbery Suspects

With news Wednesday that two suspects in connection with a brazen poker tournament robbery in Berlin had turned themselves in, the identities of three other individuals still at large have been released along with photographs.

Mustafa Ucarakus, Jihad Chetwie were both still wanted by authorities.  Another unnamed subject reportedly provided information to the bandits as to where the money was being kept.

All the suspects had prior run-ins with the police.

Robbers wielding hand guns and a machete raided a million-euro poker tournament in Berlin (The European Poker Tour) -- but were forced to leave much of their haul behind after a security guard tackled them, police said.

The masked gang burst into the Grand Hyatt hotel in central Berlin on March 6, where the tournament was taking place, threatening security staff and prompting a brief panic, police spokeswoman Heidi Vogt told AFP.  Much of the incident was caught on camera.

"Several masked, armed individuals entered the Grand Hyatt and fled with a haul of money," Vogt said at the time.

The attack on the tournament happened at around 2:15 pm (1315 GMT) just as the EPT Berlin event was about to wind down.  Ultimately, Kevin McAfee won the grand prize of one million euros.
