      PFR according to SSS, then flop scared me. On turn I have something like 1:7 pot odds to call with a 1:4 to hit flush, no? So call should be justified, however, what's the correct move on river when its checked to me?

      Turn call is justified and check behind on river sounds good to me, nice hand.

      ...if you would bet river only better hand would call you, so there's no need for that.

      Agree,nice hand as you played,pretty standard.Your pot odds on turn 5:1 and you have flush draw+1oc so call is good.No need to change river when you was passive in previous streets.If you have good sss image and your opps is know you,you can do cbet on flop when they checked to you (b/f) because K actually is good card to bluff.They know your raising range (AK,KK) and cbet 1/2 pot size or even less should be just fine. :)
      Good luck.

      Well played.

      As my previous poster stated, with both checking to you, you could cbet the flop, but against 2 it's not necessary and it depends on whether you think it will be successful against those opponents.

      Yeah, it may be played right, though not in the spirit of short stack strategy ;) But who said it's about putting all your money in as soon as possible? (well I normally do say such things but not now ;>)

      Im pushing flop)

      they are both loose/agressive
      so I expect them to bet a lot
      cbet all-in in 3way looks considerably stronger
      we will get called more often, of course
      but pot odds justify and we have some back up equity
