To be fair we don't really know how good a player the OP is or what their BR is...
As to "respect my raises", I love that. I keep seeing folks not respect anyone else's raises but expecting everyone to respect theirs. LMAO, someone bet pot on me thinking they were pushing me off my A/K suited the other night. I made a standard pre-flop raise for on the button. I guess they had it in their head I was going to bluff. I flopped a flush draw(needing only 1 card to complete a flush), str8 draw(needing only one card to complete a str8), plus a royal flush draw(but royal flushes are like unicorns, I've never actually seen one, but only needed 2 cards to get a royal flush, hey it could happen).
In the dark I knew I had more than 9 outs total, cuz 9 outs for my hole cards + what I flopped(in terms of suit) and then more for the str8. I bet 1/2 the pot(which is again standard for me and it might be a bit of an overbet but it's usually enough to make someone fold with nothing ya know?), wanted to see what the response would be.
Only guy still in was a bit of a puzzle. Would call down almost anything with anything. This time he bet what he thought was pot only it wasn't. I called, got my str8 on the turn and he kept betting at me until I doubled up through him. The only things it made sense for him to be betting were lesser flush draws, lesser str8 draws, a pair, and trips(the only hand that would be even a little scary but providing he didn't get a boat or quads, hey who cares right?). That's why I called anyway.
Long story short(yeah right), he then proceeded to yell at me about what a horrible play I had just made. So I said "A/K suited's a drawing hand", he was still steaming, and I was all, "Hey I had outs, everyone sucks out sometime"(attempt to remind him of all his own suckage that night).
Funniest part is someone made their own positional standard raise earlier and the guy called with 9/4 os to suck out with 2 pair. Apparently because the pre-flop raiser had been in early position and thus not raised by much, it didn't translate in the guy's head to hey I have a good playable hand instead it translated to, that's just 15c more than my BB.
Hey I like that the guy didn't respect my raises and bets. I also enjoyed handing a bit of instant karma to him.
Then a new guy sat, didn't respect my post flop bet(had str8 on the flop), and he got runners to complete his flush which btw pre-flop was ooh diamonds pretty. I got it back no worries.
Point is, make a mental note and make sure whatever you have for a BR is enough to cover the losses. I tend to mark these guys with red stickies. I know they think they're the cat's meow at poker and even though I feel I'm only solid, I can still whoop them. Red = bullseye btw. My notes are color coded cuz I'm a dork like that.
Anyway new guy confided he lost $170 earlier that night at a higher level. He was clearly upset. Chat's my friend .
At any rate I've played in sng's too and they don't level the playing field. They just make u think they do because everyone starts with the same amount of chips. The kind of player they are(unless they can adapt quickly), remains the same, even in sngs. I know, people don't respect bets and raises unless they normally respect bets and raises.
