As far as I'm aware, all of the auctions on eBay are timed, the highest bid at the last second wins, so it's usually best to just bid once to get you in the auction, then bid again in the closing seconds of the auction. The problem is, you can buy software to do this, so sometimes you're trying to beat a computer program to be last.Made one bid. Item sold after only two bids. Second chance offered. Get out of town.
I digressed a bit, but initially I was referring to his comment about the auction ending after only two bids, they're timed, so I was just pointing out that the number of bids is irrelevant.
