It has Float as

Calling a bet on one street with the intention of winning the hand on a future street without going to showdown.

To me a float is a hand I think is good but no desire to inflate the pot. I do want to take it to showdown and hoping to avoid more bets.

I would like answers / comments before I edit.

And I would add Flat as slightly different as I am calling not sure it is good. Hoping to improve and don't want to inflate the pot. If it does not improve I may bluff it.

I disagree. "Floating" is a bluff play.


This is merely the first example from a basic search of "making a float play" but I believe it is accurate. I think the description we are currently using is OK but could be improved I suppose.
