Default Double up or play it safe?

2320 chips with 150/300 blinds in a multi-table tournament.

I think I played this right to get all my money in, but my question is, given the blinds and the size of my stack, should I have pushed it all-in preflop instead of getting PINKYRING committed to the hand? I felt like I needed to double up there, so I think I played it right. On the other hand I may have won a smaller pot without a fight and not been knocked out if I'd raised all-in before the flop.

So, what's the best move here? Take more of a risk and double up or more if you're lucky, or try to take it down before the flop?
