"Peeling a card" is when you decide to see the next card when on a draw, usually with poor pot odds but decent implied odds.

A "Float" is when you call a bet, frequently a continuation bet, with plans to take the initiative on the next street because you think the aggressor may be weak.

Good Decisions!
