      Final Pot: $29.1.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows four of a kind, nines(9 9).
      SB shows a straight, queen high(J 7).

      Hero wins with four of a kind, nines(9 9).

      Board is ugly, and I decide that because it is so wet and ugly he could be doing this with tons of draws/two pairs. Villian is a complete unknown. This is in the first 10 hands of the match.

      it's a HU pot, your hand is very strong and raise get it in lline is perfect. i would raise the donk bet to $1.40, and then try to get as much $ in as possible. there are just too many worse hands like TPTK, pair+draw, 2pair, fd, worse set, etc that would get it in !
