This is a discussion on $5 NLHE 6-max: Call or reraise with Top set on flop? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Trying to slowplay here feels bad for me considering so many tunrs & rivers could be troublesome.
On the other side if I reraise, I might
87s seems to be in the BB range, other options are draws.
My best guess: BB does not believe you, so 3-bet to 30bb may give you the missing info.

I prefer call here. And continue to call on the rest streets. You will get value from bluffs, 2 pairs and weaker set.

BB range is wide.And from the villain stats seem that he likes to play hands.
The flop is wet heavy draw and there are a lot of action killer cards and you want to get max paid by your set.
So a 4bet has to be given.
If villain has a straight then you are not drawing dead.
If villain has air then I don't think that he will continue after your calling his 3bet.
So calling or 4betting has the same result IF villain is bluffing.
But if he is not then you want to put all the chips in the middle on the flop.

Too many turn cards to dodge (11 diamonds, four 8's, four 7's, 39% of the remaining deck), so I just get it in. Even if he has 55, a 7 on the turn is going to make it hard to get his stack.
