      Hi Kruppe,

      I'd fold the hand on the flop. You're getting great odds but, you have bottom pair, the board is kinda connected, and you're OOP.

      As played, I'd lead out turn, the board is drawy and I don't want to give free cards to draws.

      As played, well, his line looks like a moster here. If I had to guess I'd say straight... but I don't have to guess (and I shouldn't actually :D ).

      But I really can't see much that you beat here, only a bluff and maybe T9.
      He could be holding a set (66 are more likely, but TT and 99 are not impossible), he could have 87 for a straight (maybe QJ, but that's more unlikely, he'd probably have taken the free card on the flop), he could have something like KT or K9.
      Sure, you could be up against a weirdo who's bluffing, has some kind of draw or maybe a K.
      But I don't think you're ahead often enough to make this call profitable, therefore I'd fold.
