      Well, according to SSS I shouldn't bet the flop there. I believe it's because I'm not getting too good FE to semi-bluff, and I won't get better Aces to fold.
      But maybe I should bet on the turn? I don't know, I feel like I've played this hand so weakly.

      Not too sure about it either, but AQ is unlikely, given there was no raise.
      You could get Ax to fold by betting flop and river, and you could improve against a set.
      The river call is weak imo, because you have 2 callers and your kicker is low.

      I usually play BSS. I'm taking a break from BSS and playing SSS for sometime.

      If I was big stacked I'd certainly bet that flop, as I got good FE since no one showed strength PF.
      But since other players don't respect short stacks, I think I have almost no FE (if any). That's why I dislike betting the flop, even though I may even have the best hand there.

      But the turn, I don't know, it seems so weak to just check it.

      On the river I really doubt any of them has another Ace given the action through the hand. And I'm getting good odds. I can't lay it down.

      And since I'm playing short stacked I think it's very unlikely that I'm gonna get a better Ace to fold.

      I'd bet the flop, and if the pot is big enough push the turn.

      You have 9 Outs for the Nutflush here. Your 3 Outs for Two Pair are clean very often here as well, unless somebody holds 55. QQ and AA is very unlikely here. That makes 12 Outs and should give you a huge Equity. And maybe even your 2 Ace Outs are good as well here.

      So I would bet/push on the flop here against any action and would go All-In if I get called by one on the Flop.

      I would definately bet/push flop. Berliner clearly explained why.

      River call seems also fine to me. odds are almost 8:1 nad on this limit any ace would probably showed up in the earlier rounds. He will certainly win in 11% of the time.
