  3. wrong on both accounts. Floating means calling with nothing in positiion planning on either improving your hand, or taking the pot away from the guy later. A thin value bet is pretty much where your betting a very marignal hand for value. A thin call is the same thing, calling with a fairly marginal hand that you think is best. haha now i am gonna write to check out my blog at

  4. To float is to call a bet by someone when you are in position (generally a continuation bet). It's generally done with intent to outplay or steal the pot on the turn or the river if the player shows weakness or you hit something.

  5. Floating is when you call a bet on a street with nothing with the intent of taking the pot away from the better on a later street if the better shows weakness.

    Ex.) You hold Jc 8c against a preflop raiser who bets on a 3s 2h 7d board and you flat call with Jack high no draw. This is an example of floating the flop.

  6. Floating is calling with no pair and no draw in position with the intent to steal it later on in the pot.
