      PRE
      I think, this is a standard call IP.

      FLOP
      As he c-bets a lot, I have to call. Also, this board is not really connecting with his OR range.

      TURN
      I decided to turn my hand into a bluff-catcher. There basically are no worse Ax, that I can get value from. And I think villain would 2-barrel with FD.
      Only hands I can get value from are 99,JJ-KK. And I think villain would bet the river with them, if I check turn.

      RIVER
      Following my turn plan.

      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine.

      I don't mind calling the flop here but we have to ask ourselves one question - how are we going to take down the pot when we call here?
      For example, if he cbets a lot on the flop and check/folds the turn pretty much then we could just bet on the turn and take the pot.
      Could you tell me your plan, please?

      On the turn I prefer betting here. I doubt he'd check a worse hand so betting here for value is mandatory in my opinion.

      As played, calling the river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Villain C-bets a lot and I expect him to give up often on the turn. So I would bet, if he checks.

      Apparently I had to bet for value, in this instance.

      Allright, so this sounds like a plan.

      Can we now support our plan with some statistics or maybe notes? We have 90 hands on him, he did cbet in 10 out of 10 times, so I think that we could have at least 5 hands on cbet turn.

      Turn CB: 33% (3)

      No notes, but I made one about this hand:
      *BvB CB 1/2 as a bluff?

      1/2 CB looks more like a bluff, than value. But still to be proven.

      So according to the not that we have plus the fact that he only bet the turn 1 out of 3 times,and given the fact that we have gutshot plus two overcards, I think we can call here.
