I heart toasters

So I'm minding my own business in a 6-max NL$100 game on Full Tilt and happen to flop a K-high flush on the button with KJs. A blind bets out $11. I make it $25. Suddenly he's all-in for $117.10.
I think about it for a while. Then I'm like, OK. I'm just terribly unlucky if I'm up against the nut flush.
But I'm not. The toaster has done a pure tourney move, raising all-in with the A-high nut flush draw. I have a 65 percent chance to win. I'll take that any day of the week for all the chips.
Turn and river are blanks. Cat wins.
The next hand comes, I have 77. I flop a set, there is a club flush draw. Once again the toaster bets. I raise, knowing he'll be all-in for his last 25. He shows club flush draw. Once again I'm 65-35 percent chance to win.
Turn and river are blanks. Cat wins again.
Of course, after this toaster gets stacked, he goes on a diatribe of how he's made $18K off people like me. Yeah, right.
At 65-35, that's worse than the ace, three five prop. If he's making $18,000 from those kinds of bad plays, then "people like me" are taking $36K off of him.
I totally heart math.
