      raise pre flop bigger, 4BB + 1 for each limper which is 35 cents, we can even think of going 40-45 cents for max value since we expect UTG to call with such a wide VPIP.

      on the flop, turn and river bet bigger for value like 2/3 pot.

      you would have lost more in this case but other times you would have gotten value from hands like 89 AK TT JJ QQ etc
