Speculating is a bad idea with a shortening stack because you don't have enough money to imply your odds
What you should probably do is start using those semi-good hands to steal
in late position, exploiting the tight image you've built for yourself. If your table is very loose though, just continue playing ABC TAG and wait for them to pay you off when you hit.
