It's funny in poker when people play very straightforward and basic and they raise and you fold, it's called giving them "respect" - when you believe their bet and make a fold it's because you "respect" them. Of course in reality it's the exact opposite - you don't believe they're creative enough to be making a play, you don't believe they're good enough to make a fold if you try to bluff them, and you don't think they're good enough that you need to do anything out of line to beat them.
