Jan Christoph Von Halle

John Amato opened to 40,000 from the cutoff and Jan Christoph Von Halle shoved all in for 236,000 on the button. David Peters was in the small blind also pushed all in for 262,000. Amato asked for a quick count and then made the call, putting both of his opponents at risk.

David Peters: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
John Amato: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Jan Christoph Von Halle: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The flop came {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and both Peters and Amato flopped trip kings, with Amato holding the better kicker. However, the {q-Diamonds} landed on the turn and Peters improved to a full house. The river was the {9-Hearts} and Peters nearly tripled up, knocking out Von Halle in the process.
