What Does It Mean in Poker?

Floating means calling a postflop bet with a weak hand and with the intention of bluffing on later streets. For example, your opponent bets into you on a flop of 98♠5. Hands like KT and A♠Q♠ are good candidates to float the flop, as they make sense as bluffs on later streets.
