Moon Kim doubles through Amir Khaziri

Moon Kim was all in on a [Ac][5s][8c] flop holding [As][7h] against the [Qc][5c] of Amir Khaziri.  Amir had 14 outs to beat Moon and was a slight favorite to win the hand.  The turn [Qs] brought an explosion from the rail as Amir took the lead with two pair, leaving Moon to draw to his 8 outer for a better two pair or trips.  In a classic suck-resuck, the [7d] hit the river, earning Moon the double up and leaving Amir with under a million in chips.
