      Hello samlar,

      Since the opponent didn't raise us on turn, I don't really get his line, maybe even sometimes some badly played FD. Although I think folding could be doable here if we knew the opponent but as long we don't then Calling is totally fine. There are few other weak hands like straight or flush what could also be possible and never know those fishes who might even think that it might be good and put you on just a A high or some pair.

      Best regards.
