It looks like I made a mistake in how I set up my posts for my deck.

I just dug the holes and placed 4x4 posts in with the cement.(without the sonutubes)

What type of problems can I expect because of this and is there any thing I can do now to help correct them.

The height of the deck is 16", size is 20' x 16'. I have 12 posts (3 lines of 4 posts - each post is spaced every 6' and each line is spaced every 5') I think that there is plenty of support, but I'm now concerned about the problems I will encounter because the way I placed the posts.

Thanks in advance for your time

Your only real problem will be in 10 to 15 years when the posts in the concrete rot. You won't be able to replace them. You should have used Simpson embedded post bases in the concrete and set your posts in them.
