No, this is not correct

No, the query is incorrect.

If more than one id matches the same name in table2 then the query will fail with error "Subquery returns more than one row".

If id in table2 is unique (maybe primary key) then the query will not fail. But this does not mean that the query is correct in this case.

You may fix this problem by one of:

1) Replace "where ID = ( ..." with "where ID = ANY ( ..." or "where ID = SOME ( ..."

2) Add "ORDER BY ??? LIMIT 1" into subquery (replace "???" with some column name or expression which provides rows uniqueness in table2).

3) Rewrite the query to

SELECT [DISTINCT] table1.* FROM table1 JOIN table2 ON = WHERE = 'JOIN';

Еhe need to use DISTINCT depends on the structure of the tables.
