I wouldn't mind some advice on a situation deep in an MTT event. I'm a novice at this game so it's very low stakes.
Final Table and I'm 8/8 with 70k and blinds 6k/12k. Get my stack in UTG v a single opponent (the sb). It's a pretty hand, it flopped well, but I got quartered on the river. With the bb's chips in the pot, I get 38k back.
Next hand I'm the Big Blind and this happens:
PokerStars Hand #81695536271: Tournament #569322629, $1.00+$0.10 USD Omaha Hi/Lo Pot Limit - Level XXIX (6000/12000)

My questions are this:
With 12k in the pot and 26k behind, should I be jamming this hand / any hand, regardless of the action before me?
I didn't like my hand but felt compelled to call because of the value offered to me with the min raise and two callers inflating the pot to 84k.
Is this a horrible call?
Should I be jamming any hand given the value?
Having called preflop, should I jam the flop, even though I haven't hit it hard and am unlikely to be ahead v 3 opponents?
Can I fold here (preflop) and hope for a better hand in the small blind or sometime in the next orbit?
