Difficulty Breaking out of the Micros

Blinds: $0.01/$0.02 (6 Players) CO: $2.00
BN: $2.17 (Hero)
SB: $2.24
BB: $1.08
UTG: $0.95
MP: $5.89
Recs in this hands are ATC. Will both fold to a jam but will likely cold call up to 7-8bb opens.
Preflop ($0.03) Hero is BN with T T
UTG calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, SB folds, BB calls $0.08, UTG calls $0.08
I opt for a large sizing knowing that if they both call it will reduce SPR enough for me to get away on bad boards and pile on good ones.
Flop ($0.31) 6 5 6
BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $2.06, BB calls $0.98 and is all in, UTG folds
As good as a board as any. I am just going to jam here hoping to get called by AK AQ AJ that flat pre, hands like 78o, 79, 77, 88, 99. SPR is low enough and players are poor enough where I can get value from a lot,
Turn ($3.35) 6 5 6 K
River ($3.35) 6 5 6 K 5
Final Pot BN lost and shows two pair, Tens and Sixes.
BB wins and shows a full house, Sixes full of Fives.
BB wins $2.17
Rake is $0.10
I was flatted pre by Q6 offsuit to a 10x open.

Things like this happen constantly to me. I have these maniacs tagged as ATC, they're both shortstacked, but I don't want to jam because they're smart enough to fold or call with overs and I'd prefer to reduce variance.

Should I be just jamming preflop? Should I be opening way larger? Is there any way to avoid this? I'm working to claw out of this downswing. Thanks :)
