Can the value of "table respect" be quantified?

In past hand analysis', I've made many calls of reraises that appear more questionable than they are. However, it is very important that the table know, if they reraise me, they are not gonna be able to pick up a whole bunch of chips without a showdown. This is what I label as "table respect"- people respect your bets and will not raise without a big hand.

Of course, this does nothing to excuse me when I do make bad plays, (and I admit, must be used with extreme self honesty) but it is something that must be taken into account the next time you see me call a raise with k8.

FIRST LET ME SAY YOUR SUCCESSS SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. YOU HAVE REALLY DONE WELL THIS YEAR IN TOURNEYS.. INCREDIBLY WELL.. AND I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU SAID HERE ABOUT RESPECT, AND ONE COULD USE THE WORD FEAR TOO! MEANING YOU PUT FEAR INTO OTHERS ESPECIALLY IF THEY RERAISE YOUR RAISE.. BUT ALSO PUTTING A TOURNEY ON THE LINE OR MOST OF YOUR CHIPS WITH SAY K5S OR A2 ONCE YOU RAISE AND ARE RERAISED ALL IN IS NOT THE BEST PLAY... I HAVE BEEN READING POSTS FROM SOME OF THE TOP ONLINE PLAYERS.. EVRYONE OF THEM SAYS IF THEY RAISE AND ARE RERAISED BIG BACK THEY USUALLY WILL GIVE IT UP WITHOUT A TOP HAND MEANING IF THEY DONT HAVE AA KK QQ JJ 10 10 99 AK OR AQ BASICALLY... TO ME GETTING RERAISED IS THE SAME AS CALLING A BIG RAISER WITH AN AVERAGE HAND.. JUST NOT CORRECT PLAY...AND WHEN YOU LOSE SAY 10 BIG POTS IN A ROW OR 10 TOURNEYS IN A ROW ON THESE PLAYS, ONE WILL REALIZE IT.. AS LONG AS ONE WINS MANY OF THESE WHEN YOU ARE BEHIND AND BEHIND BIG, ONE MAY NOT CHANGE...IN LIFE AS IN POKEER... PAIN AND SUFFERING BRING CHANGE!
