      his line looks really weak appears to be some sort of overcards or maybe middling pair like 9X, i was thinking of raising the turn or river as a bluff or perhaps call down. on the river i dont think theres much fold equity but i saw olbioo doing this... he said the opponent was weak and not willing to commit his stacks but that was nl200.

      I don't think it's a good play for two reasons

      1) We can see his bet size slowly increasing street by street. I don't think he has air here and I don't think he folds TX

      2) Look at the remaining stack size. He just needs to call 9$ more. I don't think he folds any piece here, and I don't think he would bet 9X and fold to a raise (he either bet/calls that or check/calls).

      So basically calling > raising here, though I think folding is by far the best play.
