Hello, I have a question regarding when to use these two techniques in some situations, example: The Flop did not help me at all, but I believe that also did not help the villain. If he tries to CBet, how to choose between Making a 3Bet Light ja on the flop, or make a Float to try to take on the Turn? What is the best criterion for this decision? Please correct me if I'm wrong!
Well if he cbets, you can't 3bet him as your action will be only second, so what you mean is raising his cbet. It will make sense to do so on a lot of scary for your opponent's range boards, like wet boards, low boards, sometimes paired boards. If the board is rather dry and you're in position, you can call and see whether he continues to bet on turn. Still much much depends on turn card and postflop tendencies of your villain.

re: Poker & 3Bet Light X Float
It all depends on your opponent and his statistics in the HUD.
If he surrenders to the float, then you need to apply it.
If he does not believe the rates and often gets to the showdown then it's best we make a fold

I can't understand the question sorry , you are asking what are you going to do:
-if you have made a 3bet preflop and you didn't hit the flop?
-if you feel that your opponent made a cbet with air? If you have to check raise him or check call his cbet , and try to take down the pot on the turn?
Most of the times we say that we 3bet light against an open raise preflop but not with the monster hands. So we can say that a light 3bet can consists of hands like Axs , or 45s+.
