You make a good point Fubar, but some of us realize how our opponents perceive our table image to be, and use this against them. In other words, if our opponents always have us on a big hand, does it really truly matter what hand we have, or raise with? I attribute a lot of my success to this fact. I convince people I play a certain way everytime, and will sometimes play much looser because of it.
