      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8:diamond: , 7:diamond:
      Hero raises to $1,00, CO calls $1,00, BU folds, SB calls $0,90, BB calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($4,00) 9:diamond: , Q:spade: , 5:heart: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($4,00) 6:club: (4 players)
      SB bets $2,50, BB calls $2,50, Hero raises to $10,00, 3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $11,50

      Is it +EV to cbet with gutshot in a multiway pot? If hero had only two opponents, could he cbet on with gutshot?

      It was not good to raise on the turn, but hero misread the board (he thought there was a flush draw possible).

      However, if there really was a flush draw possible (e.g. already on the flop), what would be the correct amount of the raise (what is the calculation for such raise)?

      nah dont cbbet against 4 players, only with a very strong draw. on the turn you have to raise, even a FD not being possible, you have to make the pot grow and make straight draws pay.

      there is an article about bets and raises' sizes ;)

      Not cbetting here is standard. On the turn I'd either call or minraise. A bigger raise looks pretty strong. You have the absolut nutz, so no need to protect.
