I'm guessing your objective is to make profit rather than to make everybody think you're a great player and intelligent person. Just ignore them when they talk about how horrible your play was afterwards.
Now everybody will be prepared to stack off to you with middle pair top kicker because they think that you massively overvalue hands. Also nobody is going to bother bluffing you because they'll think you're incapable of laying down any type of hand. The unfortunate part is you'll probably have to tighten up preflop as you're likely to attract a lot of callers hungry to bust the fish.
Agree, Agree, and Agree again. Thank you for posting this, you have just given me a massive reminder of what i was doing wrong. For some stupid reason this last two week it has got into my head that i want to be "respected' as a good player at the table and it has been the worst two weeks of poker yet, aside from bad coolers.
Will be showing marginal calls, or "bad" calls in the future proudly.
Thanks again for this post.
