The backdoor poker term refers to making a hand with cards on both the turn and the river.

In other definitions, it also refers to a situation in which you are making a hand on the turn and the river that you haven’t originally been going for.

For example, you have three cards to an inside straight or flush and get these cards on the turn and the river. This is a backdoor flush or a backdoor straight, as the term “backdoor” means you achieved this strong hand in an unlikely fashion.
