      Hey ilidek,

      Preflop iso-raise is ok, I usually wouldn't bother vs the short-stack though.

      On the flop there may not be any need to cbet. You should only cbet if you think you are going to have good fold-equity against all 3 players which would depend on their stats. In general you will have less fold equity if there is a shortstacker in the hand because they get the money in lighter on average.

      Given the money in the pot I guess you should call UTG's flop shove. It would be bad if SB shoved on you, but it's probably less likely when he flats your cbet as opposed to raising. You need 25% equity to call (if SB folds, less equity need if he calls) and should have over 30% provided you see turn + river.

      Ok so I can assume that I should xb IP w/ draw in multiway pot because I don’t have FE. What about when 1 or more players are behind me? Should I bet w/ draw or play x/c or what I should do?

      If you are in a multiway pot with tigh-ish regulars, betting with a draw may still be a great option because you have FE.

      In any multiway situation where some of the opponents are loose fishy calling-stations, often it can be better to play passively. So xb IP or x/c OOP if you are getting suitable odds.
