Michael Wang's aces cracked

Level 5
Blinds: 300-500 with a big blind ante of 500
Entries: 330

A middle position player moves all in for 3,400 and Michael Wang calls from the button. Both blinds fold and the players flip over their cards:

Middle Position: [9h][9c]
Michael Wang: [As][Ah]

The middle position player stands up as his fate is all but sealed when the flop falls [Kc][Jd][Jc]. But the [9d] on the turn gave him a set, and the [9h] on the river gave him unneeded quads. Michael Wang's aces have been cracked, knocking him down to around 19,000.
