1) When a player backs into a pot, he wins a pot with a hand that would have folded to any action
2) When a player backs into a draw
, he completes a backdoor draw
Example: 1) I missed my ace-high diamond flush, but I won the pot checking down the river and beating my opponent's busted king-high flush.
2) I had a pair of aces on the flop, but backed into a flush after two hearts came on the turn and river.
