That was completed using both of the final two cards dealt, especially when the player making has other more likely opportunities to improve.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Example: Player A has 10s-9s in the pocket. The flop is Js-10c-3d. Player A has three cards to a straight, 9-10-J, and three cards to a spades flush. If the turn is an 8 and the river is a 7, Player A has completed a backdoor straight.
EXAMPLE: "I bet out with top pair on the flop, and caught a fourth card to a flush on the turn. I bet out again and my opponent raised. I called. Luckily, I completed a backdoor flush on the river. My opponent made two pair on the flop, so my top pair wouldn't have been good."
