      i think its not necessary to take a stab on this pot, but nevertheless, I would bet flop and make another bet on turn, if I get called by 1 player (especially BU). The reason for that is the board, which offers BU ton of opportunities for calling down with weaker hands.

      But overall, A5 sucks, because we often won't get paid off when opponent doesn't have an ace and will be against a stronger ace, when the opponent gives us some action. imo

      I would check A5 pf, since it isn´t that good of the hand.

      Hard to believe that BU limped with Ax, but never know. He also could slowplay set.
      Don´t like your chechk/raise- your hand isn´t that great what you´re representing- beter just to lead out on the turn, than wait that BU would make a move.
      Although you have trips, you have no kicker and A7+ would beat you + any flush. If you decide to bet, then I´ll make it bet/fold.

      it isn't good at all, but it has a solid equity against 70/5 open limper and i also think that this guy should definitely have high wts) so there is a good chance that he will pay his mid pair or a draw.
      Is not necessary to raise, but i also don't think it is any wrong.

      doesn't make sense for me to play for pot control in unraised pot... easy valubet on turn. he is likely passive, so we can easily fold to a reraise.
