Hi CardsChat, looking for some help!
I sat down at a local charity room, playing $1/2 NL with 8 people at the table. The room just opened,this was the 4th hand of the evening.
I bought in for $100 (I feel like that is mistake #1).
I raise preflop mid-positon to $12 with JK suited - clubs. 4 Callers.
Flop comes, JK9 all Spades. First guy checks, I raise $40 to protect my 2 pair against a flush-draw.
2 guys fold, 1 pushes all-in. I call him because I have a live-read he does not have the flush and just thinks I am bluffing.
He has QdQspade. He now has a flush draw, and straight draw vs. my 2 pair. He hits the straight on the river, with the 10.
Did I misplay this?

Looks like you played it fine imo, unlucky about the outcome.

Hand was played OK. Yes buy-in for the max the game allows. New table, new players I don't know anything about, I'm probably not playing KJs from MP but then again I do start tight, but that's also just results-oriented analysis on my part

especially when we are so short its a no brainer to stack off. Villain played his hand horribly preflop.

It's a break even spot. You have $52 in the pot and $48 back. The hand runs close to 50/50 with him having a flush draw and a gutshot. So knowing his hand, you have to call since so much was invested at the flop. It's a cointoss.
If there was a Q 10 or made flush, you had the wrong pot odds to continue. You're roughly 18% to fill up (hitting another K or J) and 48% to call off.
I would have checked and see what developed. Or possiblly bet smaller to possibly get more callers, to get the proper pot odds, but this would be the least advisable approach I think.
In general, I would just have checked it on the flop and re-evaluated on later streets. So many players in the hand and the board texture, it's a tough spot to be in.
