Michael Amato

Michael Amato opened for 155,000 under the gun and Tim Seidensticker three-bet to 225,000 from middle position. Action folded around to Maximilian Klostermeier who four-bet pot and Amato moved all in while Seidensticker folded.

Michael Amato: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Maximilian Klostermeier: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

Amato was behind but flopped a gutterball staright draw on the {k-Clubs}{6-Spades}{9-Diamonds} rainbow flop.

The turn fell the {4-Spades} giving Klostermeier the nut flush draw and Amato needed to hit the river to stay alive.

Unfortunately the dealer would pair the board with the {4-Clubs} river and Amato was eliminated in 12th place taking home $10,162 for his efforts.
