Getting your money in good basically mean to put yourself in an all in situation by making the right decision. In my experience different players might put slightly different meanings behind it: (but the overall idea is that your play is good) Some people can say that you get your money in when you go all in and you have a hand that has better chance of ...

The simple answer to your second problem is, a better starting hand than your ...
