I know I should have isolated the limper preflop but I was trying to set mine as cheaply as possible.

Did I play the turn and river ok or should I have put him all in on the turn. The river should I just call

Villain is 37/10/0

This is the smallest point (but important), but there is no point in putting the last 1.01 in the pot after villain leads river. You have a call or fold decision.

I repeat, no point. Not debatable.

I think this is a pretty rough spot on the river and since your price is so good calling is not going to be an enormous mistake if its a mistake when you call. It probably is a mistake, for what it is worth. Villain is probably never bluffing and probably not betting worse often enough.

I think you could have checked back turn or raised flop bigger. I don't mind the overlimp to be honest. I don't think you want to get pushed out of the pot by a three-bet from the blinds or by a limp-re-raise. You have position a good stack to pot ratio and a hand that doesn't play well postflop when you don't have a set. So I like overlimping.
