I was wondering how effective stack sizes worked in a pot with multiple opponents. Specifically, is the effective stack size and spr changing with each opponent or is there one per hand? 

Basically if I'm in a pot with 2 opponents instead of one and one opponent has $40 and the other has $50 are there 2 different effective stack sizes in this hand (assuming I have more than both opponents)? 

The definition of effective stack sizes stated it was only between two opponents so I am guessing there are multiple effective stack sizes but am not sure and wanted clarification.

You're correct. There are multiple effective stack sizes if you're playing multi-ways in a hand. So SPRs will be different for each opponent, so will effective stack sizes.
