It's not uncommon in English to hear or read "most" used to mean "very", as in the above quote from Merriam-Webster.
As for "to get the better of someone", this is also a common expression. A boxer can get the better of an opponent. You can get the better of your boss, perhaps, if you find him coming out of a motel with his secretary. It can mean "to have an advantage over, to defeat, etc."
