    If a lot of bids are placed on the last day, will we see the current high bids? It says above that results are posted daily. Unclear. Also, I want to clarify that 12 PM means noon on Sunday, correct?

    I’m not sure I bid right, I bid $25 more than the current bid so the bid was at $75 so I bid at $100 , was that the way to do it?
