When do you guys think its appropriate to shove a draw? I personally think if its under 10bb with a little fold equity than its fine to shove on a draw. I recently shoved with a straight draw when there were 3 others remaining. I was HU in the pot with villain and I knew that he would most likely call but I only had 7-8BB remaining and if I wanted to win than this was a chance to shove, I doubled up and got 2nd...

With 10BB You should push it preflop (unless you were on BB and You play aganist limpers?)
Shove is ok when You are short and have folding equity as You said but with only OESD aganist 2 players? it's still a gambling I think. OESD with top or second pair, overcards, of flush draw... In that situation All-in Is very ok even in multipot

If you had 7bb left post-flop then you should've folded or raised all in pre-flop.

All the situation depends on what the opponent is weak if you have to push everything exactly fall if you can read, you better not or you need to have a combo-draw. Something like that

You want to only shove postflop when you feel your opponents are likely to fold. For example, they've all checked to you and while the board matches your had (maybe a low straight draw) and its unlikely to match their hand. Now if the flop comes out broadway cards, then I might bluff at against one player, but even then maybe not, definitely not against multiple opponents.

You're describing a semi-bluff in a short stack situation. It would help to know what the pre-flop action was and what you had. A semi-bluff is still a bluff, but your stack was obviously too small to scare anybody away, so then you were basically just shoving on an open-ended straight draw. That is not a plus-EV play in the long run even though it worked out this time.

depends from many things like: other players stack,position,stage of the tournament etc..
my opinion is that the best spot to shove with your draw, is when you have fold equity

It depends how many bb you have than others players and your position on the table. Only do this if you have a big stack than your opponent and ar on final positions.
