Big Ace for the Big Tuna

[user153638] • Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante

After a player had raised from early position, Gabriel Tuna moved all in from the hijack for 7,500. Gregor Nastran the called from the big blind, the original raiser folded, and the cards were turned up.

Nastran: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Tuna: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}

It was a classic flip, but Tuna needed to improve in order to stay alive. The {Q-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop didn't do it, and Tuna began to rise just as the dealer burned and turned the {A-Spades}. That was one of the cards he was looking for, and the safe {8-Hearts} on the river gave him a much-needed double; meanwhile, Nastran was left with just 9,000 after the hand.
