What do mean by making a move? If you are thinking of pushing its not time for that yet. You are in good shape to make the money. Going to war with the big stack who min raised is usually not a good idea. Consider several things: How does villian usually open? If he usually bets 3-4x the BB and now he is min raising that would set off warning bells. Will he fold to a push? Many players with big stacks will call with marginal hands to try to bust you so I would make sure you have a good hand when you mess with him. I guess you can just call and look at the flop but that would require good post flop skills.

I fold, I've got a lot of BB behind right now. Mediocre hand, and coinflip would suck.
