      I decided to shove turn, to protect my hand vs sets that can catch a full house, and flush, one of them can have 9x here, but there are also a lot of worst hands from witch i want to protect

      This is definitely overplay here. Just call, if we shove we are just isolating ourselves vs 9X. Remember that this is a 4way pot. And you are risking ~2$ to win a pot of 64 cents. This risk/reward isn't too great, and I think SB/BB still can have some 9X hands. Shoving here for protection only makes sense if

      1) You have lesser money behind, maybe $1 here
      2) We think opponents rarely have 9X here

      I think those 2 conditions are not fulfilled
