playing poker at the Bellagio when a man walked up with a gun and robbed a
cage about 30 feet away from where he was playing.
".@Bellagio staff were fantastic. They surrendered the money quietly, so no
customers would get hurt. Nobody even realized it was happening. Excellent
staff, cool under pressure," Woods tweeted.
The robbery remains under investigation and further details were not
immediately available, Hadfield said.
"We are working with Metro as they investigate this incident," MGM Resorts
International, which owns the Bellagio, said on Twitter.
