      I know min raises are bad, i hate them , everytime i see them it seems to be the worst move to do , but , is it ok to min raise here? i think i'll get more action but ... don't know if a 3x or 4x raise would be better here.

      I would suggest all-in after the flop and isn't the preflop raise a bit small for NL25? :P 4BB preflop.

      Well, no, I guess. If you minraise only your premiums, they'll get notes and avoid them. In sss everything has to be played the same. Disguise, you know...

      Don't make bad habits. If you feel the 4bb raise from BU is too much you can go for 3BB+1/limper from BU and 3.5BB+1 from CO, but you have to do it consequently, with every holding (this are the sizes of the raises xylere recommends). Disguise, you know...
