I suppose we have to give him credit for calling pre-flop rather than folding...

This is why people with low IQs should not be allowed to watch poker on TV.

You should normally raise pre-flop with Aces. In an early position it's OK to limp if you're fairly sure someone will raise behind you, so you can re-raise. Generally bet them aggressively so that people can't draw out to a hand stronger than a pair, as happened here.
