Default funky funky

Weird spots everywhere in this hand. No reads, Stars 1/2. One of my earlier hands at the table, so I have no image yet.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $2 BB (9 handed) FTR converter on

Hero ($218.45)
MP2 ($142.05)
MP3 ($92)
CO ($83)
Button ($48.40)
SB ($94.40)
BB ($88.50)
UTG ($255.85)
UTG+1 ($200.10)

Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, UTG+1 calls $2,

First weird spot. One limper, EP, AJo. Raising folding and calling all make me cringe in one way or another. Was really debating raise or call.

Hero calls $2, MP2 calls $2, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, SB completes, BB checks.

Flop: ($10) K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, UTG+1 checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $8</font>, MP2 folds, SB folds, BB calls $8, UTG+1 folds.

Turn: ($26) 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $20</font>, <font color="#CC3333">BB raises to $40</font>

What the hell? I mean... I guess he could have QT in a limped pot from the big blind, but lots of other stuff too (A2/KJ/AT/Axh I guess, none of which he'll fold for his last $38). And with only $38 behind, and two double suits on the board playing a river is a bad idea, so I'm either putting him in now or folding...

<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $80</font>, BB calls $38.50 (All-In).

River: ($184.50) Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: $184.50

Basically, in these spots I didn't love my options. I still think I like how I played the hand but its really... well, funky.

Thoughts on any/all streets welcome.
