No need to apologize :) Simply put, your emotions are ruling your thoughts and play little part in a strong players game. Having the best hand, and getting all your chips in is best... always. The real consideration here is bankroll management. Keep that in mind, but first, work on the fundamentals, i.e. Odds, Hand Reading, Positional Strategy

To be clear, in NLHE, you should ALWAYS get all of your chips in pre-flop if it's possible. I'd agree with your suggestion that the OP switches to playing even at the lowest stakes possible, than spending time on play money tables.

The suggestion of making "First Principles" a priority is a useful one. As for your point on the independence of hands, I'd say that the process of decision making should be unchanged, hand-to-hand, but the inputs (i.e. available information) are dynamic. I actually think this is what you may have meant in the first place.

I thought this might be useful also. It's a very good site overall for building useful mental models farnamstreetblog.com/2013/06/…

Does the WSOP even offer this kind of functionality for online players? I notice a lot of your answers are similar to this, just linking the WSOP. If you can't be more specific in regards to the question, then it's not really appropriate here. Please consider clarifying your answers. Thanks.

The action says you "called" on the flop, but were first to act? I think you mean bet, or check, bu I can't be sure. Please take a look at the terminology because it's important when retelling a hand history. Edit as appropriate. Otherwise it's an interesting question :)

Eliminated the peripheral story--it distracts from the substantive question here. Added objective example.
