If you mean bluff, I am sure you have heard the phrase "don't bluff a calling station" It means exactly that don't bluff people who will call with anything.
I think he means how does he stop them from trying to draw out against him. (op, correct me if i have that wrong)
If I don't have it wrong then I am not sure the amount will stop a calling station, if they are not a complete donk, a continuation bet will usually do the trick. and yes I bet pot and pot again, if they missed on the turn they are more likley to lay down post turn. IMO
