best possible scenario indeed but for that play to be profitable in the long run you need to get a double up each time you hit it because that situation just doesn't come around too often, so in the long run you will lose money if you don't get the double up. (i think. so i've read lol) someone might be able to back this statement up.

I hit an identical hand yesterday at ZOOM poker. UTG raised to 3bb, I had him on something very strong because I know his style, so with KQs (hearts) in the CO I called and the flop came down Jh Th 8h. He bet a moderate amount and I flatted, the turn was 9h, he checked I checked, river was 6h at which point he bet strong, I raised him and he shoved with AhAs. Dream hand.
Here's one in reverse:
