It's a player auction, and a great way to hedge.

It is a Player Auction...Basically, Bid on a player if he wins , you win!

Anybody can bid on the players. If you have a significant other bring them along and tell them to buy you and see if you can handle the extra pressure /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Hard to learn? No not at all, have someone bid on you,
decide what your limit is. If it goes over your limit
you still have the option of buying half, and selling half of your half to someone if there are any takers.
See how deep they pay on the calcutta, and what are your chances of finishing in the top 3? It's purely a risk
reward type of gamble. You can bid on anyone if you feel
they can win. Favorites usually go fairly high.
