Villain is unknown 9 hands 22/11/0.5

My bet sizing is maybe too big OTR? Should I be calling this river shove?

If going for a bet I would have made river bet smaller to half pot as it will be hard for even AA to call you, overcards are going to comprise most of the range you beat that will call your bet. Personally I would check-call this board vs a reasonable bet and allow missed draws to bluff here as it is so hard to get paid off by worse against a strong player (go for it against a fish, for sure). Vs shove this is an easy fold. I think he will flat with JT on a paired board like this, shoving is too thin. Cant see him having anything other than a fh. Given the strength you have shown it is very hard for him to shove a missed draws given your range includes a lot of fh combos yourself.

I think your turn bet was fine, he can hold many flush draws and TX like 9T as well as TT, JJ and 2 pair hands. Might have QQ, I expect QQ+ to be 3bet a lot.

I think your bets on each street are perfectly fine and I'd play the hand the same way. River has got to be a b/f given that it was a multiway pot at first and there are no further infos/reads on this tighter villain. He would need to be capable of turning a hand like T9 into a bluff.

What worse hands are we trying to get to call on such a wet board? We are right near the bottom of our value range here and my inclination would be to check/call to let villain either bluff his missed flush draw or maybe even value bet 8x, although he probably doesn't have too many of these in his range that don't have us beat.
