In the first Auction, I payed high for my first Jester and bought two Profession Cards...
As I read your report you bought 2 Profession Cards in the first round. That's not possible; you may perform 2 Actions during your turn after the auction, choosing 2 from the following actions:
1 freedom (not 2)
1 profession card (not 2)
1 or 2 bonus cards
1 or 2 buildings
1 or 2 works
Maybe you played it right, than ignore my post .
Great game, one of my favourites!
