      Should I use any of these moves in my playbook and if that is the case when?
      The limp and the min-raise I personally see no use whatsoever for but I guess min re-raise could be implementable. Just don't know when :rolleyes:

      HMM?

      i'd probably find a spot where it's a viable play in 1/20000 hands. the above isn't one of them, btw.

      Watched a couple of videos from a site that I won't mention :rolleyes: .
      All of their coaches seem to implement the min-raise post-flop quite regularly, partly with strong hands to induce raises when playing against aggresive players and also with semi-weak holdings to get information and for balansing. Mostly on dangerous boards.

      And NO above is not one of them :] , nice result though

      I do "click it back" (min raise a min-raise), but only when I have a good read on my opponent. Usually it's better to just shove though

      the reason is more for metagame and deception. both of these are entirely not necessary at the low limits.

      it can show some advantadges but when you use it you have to balance it very well in order to make it profitable . on the spot it will create you an idiot image and after 2 or 3 minraises people might stack light against you .

      It all depends on the limit you play and on the opponent when thinking about such plays. I would suggest to never do such plays, except the minraise postflop, on low limits. On limits above NL200 it might make sense to implement such plays.
      for the low limts: just forget, that such plays are possible :D

      best regards,
