David, I use a “snipe” program. It places my bid in the last seconds of an auction, sort of like placing a sealed bid. This way you avoid being “king of the hill” when your bid is highest. Other bidders think they need/have to compete with you and that can ratchets the bid up to irrational levels. It also keeps me from 2nd guessing my maximum bid and participating in that kind of show. -Jack
