Well since everyone limped in the pot it is small usually. You do not see a lot of people limping in when the blinds are big. I think this is mostly because the week players are gone and those that are left are either good or tight with chips trying to hold on.
So let's say blinds are 10/20. Three players limp in and it comes to the sb. I call for 10 against 70 and wait for the bb to check or raise. If bb raises, it is an easy fold.
Flop comes very dry and I open with a 60 chip bet. There has not been a huge investment. If there are callers then on the turn you check or fold or if you hit on the flop raise.
Remember I am only making this move against tight players and not against loose players or those that do not understand position.
