re: Poker & Floating
[quote=CuttleFish;1854854]So is "having a plan to steal on a later street" what differentiates it from just being a calling station?
I've sometimes deliberately asked the dealer "how much is in the pot" so it looks like im calculating pot odds of chasing a flush, then to take it down after the turn or river when it hits and i didnt really have it at all. So this is floating?
Assuming you called bets/raises on earlier streets with just this intention, then yes.

Difference beatween calling station and floating is you're going to play your hand aggressively on later streets after calling bets on earlier ones whereas a calling station is just going to call every street. No aggression really.
