Default (10+1) Am I being too weak with these hands?

Just curious I am more familiar with late game play and I am trying to open up in the early game to gain some chips.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t20 (9 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

Hero (t1500)
SB :#A500AF(villain)/ (t1500)
BB (t1500)
UTG (t1500)
UTG+1 (t1500)
MP1 (t1500)
MP2 (t1500)
MP3 (t1500)
CO (t1500)

Preflop: Hero is Button with Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">6 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t60</font>, SB :#A500AF(villain)/ calls t50, <font color="#CC3333">BB raises to t100</font>, Hero calls t40, <font color="#CC3333">SB :#A500AF(villain)/ raises to t590</font>, BB calls t480, Hero folds.

I don't mind hand 1, probably fold hand 2 pf.

Grunching...

1. Good fold IMO

2. Raise pre-flop to 60-80. Fold to a re-raise.

Hand 1: I like your play fine.

Hand 2: I also like to limp AJo from this spot at this blind level, but with the intention of calling a 3-5xBB raise. This gives me "more" information (imho) than opening with a raise and being called by 1-2 callers. And I don't mind a large multi-way pot with that hand either (unlike if I hold AA-QQ).

I donít like the line of limping with AJ LP with the intention of calling a raise. Sure, you have more information if you are raised, but to me that information is saying I donít have the best hand and I should fold.

Hand 1: I play it like you did.

Hand 2: Sometimes I limp, sometimes I fold. Fold to the re-raise.

Edit: Hand 2: I thought here was LP in this hand, being MP2 I fold every time.

i defintiely don't raise AJo from MP2 in level 1. i think limp fold is fine, if not just fold.

Harrington on Hold'em vol 1

"In 3rd position... I'd play AJ with a mixture of 70% raises and 30% calls. In 4th position I'd play AJ the same way..."

and he describes this as a conservative opening strategy.
