      Villain could have 99-JJ right? Should I have folded to his absurdly large turn bet?

      Preflop isolating is fine.

      Any info about villain?

      Against unknown it is very hard to say what's the best play here.
      Me personally, I would rather fold here on the flop. We have a guy that limp/calls and bets potsize on this board, which is pretty connected and he could have a lot of two pair/sets etc, plus we have a caller as well and overall we would hard time playing the turn.
      I wouldn't say that calling is a mistake though, since we do have an overpair, but without info I would rather choose the safest option.

      I think the turn is an easy fold here. Don't really expect this guy to go crazy with a hand like 99-JJ, and we don't have information.
