I dont think there is ever one correct play, it just depends on the exact situation end how its been playt so far.
Raising 3-4 BB on the button could look like a steal and might be
re-raised by an rag ace on the other hand they might fold if the have crap hands, or try to end the hand with a big raise if the also have a small pocket par. And the button raise might get flat callt with a marginal hand (suited conectors,K9,Q10,J10,)
Min raising could also look like and weak atempt to steal, or a monster screaming for action and might scare them of that sayt i doubt the BB folds a min raise coz he is probly getin prised in expept if he has 72 offsuit.
And then there is the option no online player ever talks about and allways say it wrong(even if the best in the world do it all the time),
that limping on the button that whould look like a suited conector,small pp looking for a set(U),marginal hand seeing if he can steal post flop or what whould whant them to think is an monster hand(AA,KK) just dieing to get some action and whants to give the blinds a shot a catching up.
Any way all that sayd i just got in this same situation when i was writing this at an fulltilt sng(had 44) and i raised 3 times the BB and the small blind min raised me i call flop came 4-7-9 he whent all in and i call he turnt over J9 and i won.
