· Bluff (Bet)
You cannot win the pot with the hand you've been dealt unless you
convince EVERY other player at the table that you have a strong hand.
A bet suggests strength, which is what is missing from your hand.
Note that a bluff that doesn't fold every player by showdown is a
failed bluff, and a waste of money in the end (Meanwhile, none of this
applies to online poker, unless played multiplayer and then usually
there is no betting involved, and bluffing is then rendered useless).
