He said he didn't go all in until after the flop, where he had just caught an aces over deuces full house. The odds of making that full house on the flop from unpaired hole cards are 1088-to-1. Any player who doesn't get all of his money in the pot in that situation should be tarred and feathered.
His opponent also cannot be faulted for calling the all in. He flopped a set of Aces with a Queen kicker. The only things he had to fear were AA, AK, or the full house on the flop, which, as previously noted, is a huge longshot. Very luckily for him, he caught his Queen on the river and made the bigger boat. Both plays stand up well. It was just two monster hands having a wreck.
