Sorry for the two HH but this is more of a generic question. I feel my cbets with unmade hands on 3bet pots almost rarely work. I almost completely dished the 33% cbet because I feel it gets no credit at 5NL. But I'm not sure a little over 50% pot cbet is working much better. Are these spots standard or should I have given up on any of them? Both against relatively unknowns
Thanks for the feedback!

Can you develop on number 3, please? It really got me curious.
Number 2 is very much me all the time, yes

I just f** hate variance and it made me quit poker back in the days but now, given the lockdown going on, I decided to give online poker another try and I'm already running bad from almost the start. I know it's a small sample but I'm almost 9 BI below EV just for this month and this without counting the amount of set over set and flush over flush I've been getting.
Stakes are small but it's frustrating to deal with. How much worse can variance get?

This is a common situation that always leaves me lost. In this specific case, villain is 22/19 with a fold to 3bet of 63 and a fold to cbet of 67 (small sample).
Is the flop cbet good? What about turn check call? Maybe check calling twice would have been better?
Thanks for any feedback!

Villain is as 20/15 reg with a fold to 3bet of 50%. We had been in some previous 3bet spots before but never got to showdown.
I'm really lost on both flop and turn although flop sizing seems bad in retrospective.
How should I have approached this 2 streets?

Hello guys, more of a concept question here.
On FTU, Peter Clarke talks about Selective vs Unselective c-betting in Late position vs Blind defense spots, and introduces the merits of cbetting 33% pot with all our range on dry flops that retain our advantage.
Can this concepts be applied even when oop in non-blind defense spots? If no, should we typically be c-betting selectively with a higher pot %?
As an example, say we open 77 in HJ and get called from the BU. Flop comes Q 6 2 rainbow. Without many reads on our opponent, can we c-bet 33% pot oop here, or how should we proceed?
Is Q high that bad to cbet on, overall or just in 3beet pots? I thought that apart from the FD, this board was as dry as it gets
On the 2nd board I realise now that it is probably just to connected and should have used my SDV.
