      Yes. It's a 5-way pot, SOMEBODY has to have an A, plus there are known big fish involved. I see no reason not to just bet out for pot, the extra 0.04 won't bother anyone that was planning to call a bet. I'd pot the turn again as played, we're not sure Kx or worse is calling again, but an A certainly isn't going anywhere regardless of the bet sizing.

      As played on the river "super fish" doesn't really help us. It could mean he's a giant calling station, in which case for him to actually raise we might not be good against 2x. It could mean he's a monkey so he's raising there as a bluff sometimes and with any two pairs, maybe with a lone A if he's really insane. No clue, but we usually need a good read to find a fold. So I'd say when in doubt your line is fine, he has more A3/A4/A5 combined than 2x in his range unless he peeled the flop with gutshots like 42/52 too, so shoving for value by default is fine.

      Hope it helps.
