Phahurat's Aces Lead to Double Up

When we got to the table, AP Phahurat was all in for over 20,000 preflop holding {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, and he was in great shape, as his opponent showed {a-Spades}{j-Spades}{k-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. The flop came down {2-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}, and Phahurat stayed out in front. The {8-Diamonds} hit the turn, which didn't change anything, as neither player had diamonds. The river came the {9-Spades}, and despite their being a four card straight on board, Phahurat's lone pair of aces was good enough to ship him the pot worth 44,000.
