When rumors of an active shooter on the Las Vegas Strip sent players into a panic, the World Series of Poker and other casinos descended into chaos.
Some hid under poker tables while others ran out into the halls and threw themselves to the floor.
As if nothing had happened, some sat calmly in their seats, chatting away as if nothing had happened.
A picture of Daniel Negreanu’s injured hand was posted on his Facebook page. A man shows off his bruised leg.
There wasn’t a shooter in the event.
Rumors spread like wildfire that a shooter was on the loose after a glass door at the MGM shattered.
It took the Las Vegas Police Department to deny that there was anything going on.
People are running at various casino locations in videos. As far away as New York, New York, The Excalibur, and the Bellagio, there were reports of people panicking.
After initially asking everyone to leave Paris, the officials of the World Series of Poker reassured players, dealers and floor staff that the area was safe and that they could return to the tournament areas.
It was expected that it would take a little while to get back to normal.
We don’t want to publish the photo of Negreanu’s injured hand in case readers aren’t fans of blood.

As panic mounted, others also took to social media.
Norwegian Espen Jorstad had won the main event of the World Series of Poker for $10,000,000.
