      yeah you should bet smaller for a value bet.

      The only hand which will call your shove is something that has you beat

      Bet flop bigger,around 3-3,5.
      Bet turn bigger then, around 9-10.
      Voala, you dont have to overshove now, you have less than potsize left on the river and you have successefully protected against draws.
      Good luck :D

      plan your hand!
      the flop is quite drawy so you should bet more to protect, at least 2/3 pot, preferably even more because you are up against 2 players
      I bet 4 and maybe more here
      that way the pot on the turn is ~13 and you can bet 9-10 so the pot will be ~33 with him only having ~8left

      as played u give him the implied odds for the flushdraw too

      +3
      Whn you bet bigger on the flop and turn then it is easy to shove river for value.
