open your range a lot in late position, when you have over 30BB. Which means limping in position after other limpers...don't open limp....with hands like suited one gappers, and non-suited connectors. If you have deep stacks, call raises with these. Don't get too crazy though. When hands like these hit, you are more than likely doubling up from someone who can't dump there QQ+, TPTK hands.
