To win at auctions you have to play it differently
In the game of poker, you play the table, not the hand that you are dealt. Auctions are very similar. It is not about the property that you have but the auction it goes in, the room, the perception of the property that you are selling and ultimately how to make it stand out. To achieve that requires unconventional and creative strategies.
Just like poker, anyone can play, the game itself is simple to understand and simple to participate in. However, a master, someone trained in how the game is meant to be played and the nuances involved, can dominate and play with confidence.
