      It's better here to make the standard play: raise 4xBB+1BB/limper, because most of the time you are behind the range of the UTG limpers (small pairs, or even monsters, often at the lower limits you will find players who limp in from UTGx and MPx with AK or AQ).
      You can't judge the button after only 8 hands, and even for the other villans you don't have enough hands. I think you should have at least 100 hands to rely on the stats.
      You losse against an Ax hand, or against a pocket pair.

      I agree with Burek2k sony. People on NL10 aren't that tricky on the whole, but if you raise 4xBB + 1BB/limper, then you raise to 70c here. By your reckon you are behind here, and what happens when someone raises over the top? You are pretty much committed I think. It's easier to push when you have the FE and can take down the pot PF. If you believe you are behind to some of the limpers then perhaps you should just fold.

      If UTG is a decent player his UTG limping range contains only low pocket pairs, which he will fold to a push because of the 2 players who have to act behind him. But his stats(for only 54hands) doesn`t show this but in my experience he will fold to a push and the other two guys will fold, too.

      after 3 limpers its fine to push immediately in the blinds
