If we were hypothetically speaking let's say, and IF only bidding on Ebay once and early had disadvantages, those same disadvantages might also be present here.

Of course, that doesn't make it as fun for the spectators but the desired results of the spectator and bidder aren't often the same.

This is a good point... to some extant someone who is so motivated could actually influence the outcome of the auctions in play. It ain't a horse race.

"Influence the outcome of the auctions"?

I guess I'm not equating waiting for more information to make a more accurate *Guess* with "influencing the outcome of the auction"...

OK. For my swag, I will make a total guess of 249.99. The problem will be picking from the prize cart!!! A book of secrets, or FPN logo. Geez!

I wanted to make the total different, but I was afraid that might break the rules.
