      If you decide to float I think we should barrel the turn on almost any board and go for a free showdown depending on the player, on turn and river card. Sometimes we can even fire another barrel on the river if we put him on a pair on the flop but a scare card came from him on the turn etc.

      A check behind can produce scare cards on the river enabling villain to bet again or you might still lose if he has Q and weak kicker.

      you can 3-bet your hand pf.
      I´d often raise these boards, since you have to fold to turn barrel and players would often barrel there with flushdraw (when spade comes) or also scared cards, like K or A.
      So turning your hand kind of bluff and raising on the flop is often better than float and then try to take it away on the turn
