The way CBS went ... late on if a guy was bid more than 3 or 4 that reflected some enthusiasm at the table for him ... but prices tamped down because so much was spent early.

The system doesn't give you much time - 15 secs for first bid, immediately re-setting to 10 secs for every additional bid.  So someone could close out for $3 in about 15 seconds, if someone bid $2 within a few secs, and the guy who threw him out came back immediately with $3, and then the clock just ran out without anyone else getting a chance to think about it.

But if it was crept up at least to the $6 or more range, it means a few people actually had him on their late game lists and wanted in on the action.
