2.) You're heads-up in a tournament. You have 4x as many chips 
as your opponent in the big blind. Your opponent limps in and 
you look down at Ad - Ah. You should:

 A. Check your option
 B. Make a large raise
 C. Make a callable raise 

3.) In a 7-player game, everyone folds to you in the small blind. 
You look down at Js - 10s & raise 3x the big blind. The big blind 
calls quickly & the flop comes 9h - 8s - As. You bet 9x the big 
blind and your opponent comes over-the-top, all-in. The call would 
require an additional 12x the big blind in chips on your part. 

 The call is the smart play. TRUE or FALSE?

4.) You hold As - 7h in the big blind. The pot is raised and then 
re-raised to 12x the big blind before reaching you. You are the 
shorts tack with 20x the big blind in chips. You should:

 C. Re-raise all-in

5.) You hold 10h - 8h in the big blind. Both the dealer & the 
small blind call & you check. The flop comes 10d - Ah - 7h. The

small blind folds. You have 40x the big blind in chips.
