Default Minraises??

So I've been having some trouble interpreting minraises around the bubble and onward. I'm afraid I'm giving them too much credit, as it could mean garbage or a monster. I usually prefer folding and pushing when I'm first in. Am I missing out on some EV? What do you guys do here in the average 10+1?

Game #854045823: Texas Hold'em No Limit (100/200) - 2005/08/14 - 19:09:49 (ET)
Table "STT1 941149 - 1" Seat 2 is the button.
Seat 2: Hero (2427 in chips)
Seat 3: Catch__22 (460 in chips)
Seat 6: burnt (5247 in chips)
Seat 8: Tossit (1866 in chips)
Catch__22: posts small blind 100
burnt: posts big blind 200
----- HOLE CARDS -----
dealt to Hero [9h Ah]
Tossit: raises to 400
Hero: folds

The 2nd one I let go pf. The first is tougher. I normally just fold cause youll definetly find a better spot and you got plenty of chips to wait to be the raiser or actually have a good hand.

Default Re: Minraises??

These are both weak raises by Tossit. If I were you, I would not play these hands due to the really short stack on the bubble. Tossit is scared that burnt will call him if he went all in. If burnt was any kind of a decent player, he would push any 2 cards into Tossit to make him fold (due to the extremely short stack).
