      Nothing crazy here. I really should have four bet this (and open raised larger given the limper. Just sub par pre flop play here. Still I wanted to learn a bit from this.
      My questions are :
      1) should I have four bet shove? or just four bet? if so to what size?
      2) I really feel that I ran into a boat of 5s full of fours. Was my turn bet too small?
      3) The fold feels correct...Thoughts?

      Really appreciate the help!

      You are right about the sub par preflop play :) You should iso-raise bigger and ofc 4bet here. I wouldn't 4bet shove but you can 4bet quite big.
      OTR villains line looks very strong. I doubt these are bluffs very often but could he do this with JJ+ too?
      I think folding here is fine.

      It’s interesting to know why you only called the 3bet pre-flop to play AA multi way.
      As played I would most likely bet the turn more for value. You can easy bet 40c here and river is nasty for sure. I think folding is fine. I expect a fish can have a 5 or 4 here.

      You should make it 10 cents to begin with. When BTN makes that wierd tiny 3bet, you should deffo 4bet ! The pot is way too small for your AA . Get as much money in pre as possible, you have the best hand !

      Your bet OTT is, again, too small. Make it 50% at least.

      You showed weakness preflop and OTT, so I think he could shove with a range like (66+), maybe even A-high so I would call river.

      answers to questions:
      1) yes deffo ! Make it potsize 22-24BB-ish
      2) yes, your turnbet was way too small. if you had made a normal sized bet (50-60%pot) and got raised, than you can think of him having a better hand.
      3) I would have called

      You correctly have betted small on the turn in order to leave him something on the river but at the same time invited multiple players pre-flop by making mess
