      I wanted to float on the it ok or should I just fold...
      on the turn I made a semi bluff after he showed weakness....better to check behind and try to hit the draw and keep the pot small?

      river was just a bluff....I had nothing so this was the only way to win...
      is the A a good card to do it?

      It should work although A is not the best card, since if villain has there smt like Tt he´d expect you to check back QJ on the turn or even KQ if you were floating that hand on the turn.
      But some weaker players would fold Jx and Kx so I don´t mind betting river.
      Also if you´re not really planning to bluffraise turn I think raising flop is better option.
      - your T high really doesn´t have any showdown value, so you have to bet turn to take pot down.
      - you get very often barreled by Q, K, A turn cards and very often maybe also on blank cards since you´re floating that board so wide
      - board is so dry that he doesn´t really expect you to raise there too light, so he doesn´t necessary 3-bet you back smt like AT and although it looks suspicious he would b/f there better hands and only continue mostly hands that has Jx+ or 88+
