Back Into a Hand

To draw cards that make a hand that is different from the hand you were originally trying to
make.

Usage: You back into a hand when you are intentionally in the pot to make a different hand than the one you ended up with. For example, if you flop a straight and up with a flush, you would say "I backed into a flush."
