I think we do raise to get informations, which means a larger raise means opponets will hold better hands, IF they wants to enter the pot. It also signals that we do have a strong hand. So the raising depends very much on what we want to achieve, and which impression we want to give our opponets.
The question must be if we want to steal the blinds will min raising work ?
if we hold a big pair do we want a lot of drawing hands in the pot ?
I know min. raising might be good for 1 thing thou, get a lot of people into the pot the pot will be big, then fold and let the other players battle it out, hoping that some of them will get knocked out of the tournament.
