This is a discussion on Floating the flop within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Floating the flop is a good move to have at your disposal.
Say you are playing a guy who likes to CB a tonne of hands
2. Check the turn with a made hand after the CB on the flop
3. Raise you on the turn if you often float and bet as a bluff
4. CB less in general with draws and weak hands if he is not willing to barrel or bluff the turn (or the river).
It is always a game of changing and adapting if you think someone is trying to exploit you.
Be like water: change all the time dependent on your opponents style. Game flow and image should never be constant.

Good move... gets even more powerful when you were able to manifest a tight image at the table and have shown really strong hands when you made bets on later streets.
But you also musst be willing to give up when villain calls or even re-raises. Even players with inssane CB stats flop the nuts sometimes
