      The raise preflop is too weak here. If you are going to isolate a limper, you have to do it for enough to fold out the blinds. With a hand as weak as this, you don't want callers. I raise to $1.25 in this position.

      The flop looks good for a raise, with FD+p, but having played that, I think you have to play bet/shove on the turn. The turn is a blank, and I don't think your hand is strong enough to want to induce a huge river bluff from your opponent.

      The overbet on the river looks fishy, but you can't even beat a Ten, so this call looks -ev on balance.

      Would also bet/shove turn.
      As played I think I would call that overbet. Only think that hit is 97

      I actually hold two pairs there and beat any ten. Turn shove is bad since if he called that big raise he is not folding on the turn often enough after that flop action, he's likely holding better hand there, so without FE it's clear check behind.

      Opponent looks weak. I think he often makes calls there with fd , oesd or pair + backdoor flush kind of hand so you still have some FE

      This I missed, and therefore I agree, your two pair is probably better than his hand now.
