Floating

Found a good example of floating in poker, which is calling a flop bet without a made hand in hopes that you will improve or your opponent will give up. In this hand, the player in position (last to act) floats both the flop and the turn where he improves to a 2nd-best straight draw, then takes control on the river after the pre-flop raiser surrenders with the best hand.

I hate to get outplayed like this, but there's not much you can do when you're out of position, unless you happen to know that your opponent floats most flops and turns, and that he's probably doing so in the current hand.
