      Agree w/ above and commiserations on getting sucked out by a clown twice. He shouldnt have been in either pot preflop. Ill bet he donated all that money back to someone else pretty fast.

      Thanks a lot!
      Hand 1 I know I should have bet more, but I thought I don't want to scare him away. I knew I'm ahead and wanted to extract value.

      Jaissica, you are right, these monkeys were spreading my wealth:D Villain in hand 1 doubled up to $10, about 30 hands later he was down to $2.60... From now on these players go on my list and will be chased down until I get my money back:)
