Why did my bid jumped above the next bid increment?

Why did my bid jump above the next bid increment?
There are two instances where your maximum bid will be entered above the next bid increment.
- First, if another bidder has placed a higher maximum bid, your bid will then be increased to one increment over his maximum.
- Or secondly, your bid will be entered at the lowest price for which the consignor is willing to sell the item. (the reserve price)

The system will not allow you to bid against yourself.
