In my opinion, backed up by the experiance of playing micro-limits a while, 95% of the time this is weakness. Its even weaker than a check, because check/raises happen more often than min-bet/raises. Once in a while you'll have a tricky villain who will min-bet and hope you raise, but its almost always weakness at 10$ No Limit and below.
IMO, it was pretty obvious in this hand that villain had AK (which are the cards he had). Idiots min-raise AK preflop, because they think its a good hand, but they don't want to commit chips when they might miss the flop. And then they don't have the balls to actually c-bet, so they just flip a big blind out there, and hope I'll fold.
And this min-bet is just them showing how defensive they are. The reason I didn't raise this min-bet is for 2 reasons (other than the one previously stated):
1) I doubt villain could fold AK here until the river, he's that bad.
2) On the turn, if I hit a king, I'm probably taking his whole stack.
So yeah. Moral of this story is that microstakes retards are predictable. They bet next to nothing when they have nothing, and the bet HUGE when they actually hit a hand. Don't call big bets from idiots.
I folded FWIW, and villain showed me his cards.
Btw, nice guess feitr.
