We raise bigger on the flop... if he jumps we shove. Make them fear us. It's our play not his lets see it through.
So your advice is essentially to throw money at him and hope that he doesn't have anything that can call?
I would heartily disagree. Making a flop bet bigger because "people respect it more" is crazy town. you can only bully the table so long, and it leads you into situations where someone is going to call you with something and you are going to lose your stack.
Using that reasoning, your play has to be profitable much more often than 50% of the time, becuase you are going to lose more money postflop than just the preflop 3bet. If that is the case you really have to make money a substantial amount of the time for this to be profitable.
are just terrible and that strategy is not going to lead to long term success, but it will lead to winning some hands. Ultimately it will lead to big variance, winning small pots and losing big ones.
