      I think the flop is standard, he could have a flush draw with 2 overcards, some overcards with or without a wheel gutshot, a lower overpair, and less often a bigger overpair, probably never a set. Unless you have reason to believe he would stack off with worse made hands here i don't think you wanna get it in on the flop with just 99 so calling is fine.

      When he checks the turn he is mostly giving up, you can either make a decent bet to protect against all sorts of draws+overcards or you can keep the pot small and see a river. The later choice will prove to be easier to play in most cases.

      The river blanks out and he checks again, i think he has nothing the overwhelming majority of the time, plus he has to know you've probably got an okay made hand when you bet/call the flop, you can't really expect to get called by anything worse really. Especially if your image is taggish he'll expect you to 3bet a big flushdraw on the flop, so you can't really represent a missed draw by betting on the river even when you checked behind the turn. Checking behind the river is fine imo.

      Hope it helps.
