If I choose a piece and open a bid with a bid of zero, am I out of the bidding if play comes back 'round and any of the other players have put in a bid?
The rules say if no-one bids you get the piece. So I'm thinking that bidding zero is classed as no bid at all.
An opening bid of nothing is exactly that nothing/not to bid. You are out, and cannot jump back in with further bids for this piece!
However, if no-one bids (the zero bid round goes full circle) the auctioneer wins.
