This would be an unlikely play for a made nut hand from him, however he sometimes does the same thing with the nuts as he does weaker hands with a lot of equity.
My gut was saying two pair based on the preflop action, things he said and did on the street, with the possibility of pair with a draw type hands.
I think the number of times I stack off against 89o, I'm going to be making money in the long run based on the times I stack off against 87, 86, 85, and pair and a flush draw type hands, not to mention he could be holding 74, 54, 64 as well, but I don't see him stacking off here without even a draw to a chop.
Also given the board texture, I wouldn't be surprised if he played a flopped set that way, however I'd suspect his original flop bet would be much bigger, since the table is ripe with calling stations.
As far as my raise for isolation, like I said, the table is weak, and very rarely act based on pot-odds. They are much more likely to call because they 'feel like it' or 'think that it's coming', without bothering to learn the math behind the game (Thanks, guys!). Villain and myself know the math of the game, and have gotten into hypothetical discussions about certain hands and equity where the rest of the table would be left scratching their head saying things like "What's an equity?"
Plus, it's a half value bet.
