      Preflop: 3bet okay?

      Flop: standard Cbet (I Cbet everything in this board)

      Turn: I think the x/c is the best we don't have to protect and we can induce a bluff, he will fold for a bet AK, TT, JJ and 99 QQ KK AA will raise, only KQ and AQ can call. He can bluff with AK (float), it's half of his range.

      River: Okay the value bet and the size? I think there are some value from KQ, maybe TT JJ.
      There are nothing 99 QQ KK AA in his range, because on turn would be raised.

      Was it proper?

      Preflop should be fine. Not enough hands to really say call > 3bet or the other way around so depends on what image you want to create.

      Postflop, the cbet is fine but I would most certainly not cbet 100% of hands I have there.

      Turn is a bet though for sure, easy vbet, take Qx or worse to town, stack'em asap. 99 are only 3 combos, QQ+ 3bets pre, only 78s improves to beat you, he will pot control Qx, TT, JJ and will fold it on the river bet anyway so you just give him a free card. The board is very drawy anyway: any hand from 65s and higher has something here. Suited connectors are commonly defended vs 3bet in this position so he will have hit the board often, hence why I wouldn't cbet even close to 100% on this board like you initially proposed.
