Okay, so I took part in one of those Doublers, and DID receive my doubled earnings.  This question has NOTHING to do with the legitimacy of the person running the Doubler, but rather how to read/parse the transaction information from BlockExplorer.

here is the information I was able to get off of BlockExplorer, with some data redacted (via using underscores) for privacy:
Code:
"_______":{
"hash":"_______",
"ver":1,
"vin_sz":1,
"vout_sz":2,
"lock_time":0,
"size":257,
"in":[
{
"prev_out":{
"hash":"b6742488ff34b7_______",
"n":1
},
"scriptSig":"_______",
"address":"__ADDRESS_A_____"
}
],
"out":[
{
"value":"0.16950000",
"scriptPubKey":"_______",
"address":"__ADDRESS_B_____"
},
{
"value":"0.83000000",
"scriptPubKey":"_______",
"address":"__ADDRESS_C_____"
}
],
"block":"_______",
"blocknumber":"_______",
"time":"_______"
}


Very redacted, but that information shouldn't matter.

Anyway, the redacted portions marked __ADDRESS_ABC_____ are three completely different address.

Address A (in the IN section): This is the doubler address that I initially sent my bitcoin entry too
Address C (in the OUT section): This is my address, and the value of 0.83 is exactly what I received from the Doubler

Address B (in the OUT section) confuses me.  It has a value of 0.16950000, though I know I didn't receive that value, and I am unsure if that is one of my addresses since I do not see it anywhere on any window or subwindow of the BitCoin client.

Anyone mind enlightening me on this?  I have already done a bunch of google searches for information, but i know I am missing something here, i just don't know what.
