Notes: I had just played a hand where I had very nice odds on a drawing had but did not catch and lost a lot of chips. In addition, I was a now a little below average stack and I was thinking about your comment that I want to finish in the top 20% to 25% with an above average stack most of the time. I was itching to make a move.

Upon reflection it seems I should have folded or gone All in pre flop based on the effective stack size of 20BB. Your thoughts
