2. When might you bluff trying to win the whole pot no limit holdem ?

Ans : When you are playing heads up, if you miss on the end, think your lone opponent might also have missed on the end, and don’t think he will call with a small pair, then you may bluff trying to win the whole pot.

Ans : Bluff with a raise.

4. If the player with the straight calls and the low reraises, what can you do ?
