If the flipped out cards are too "patchy" that no one rings the bell, say for already 10 cards, what should be done?

Sure Mr. Pelikan will help with that in due course. But it is my opinion that cards are added until there is a buyer. Do the math: 10 cards means that its extremely unlikely You cannot use at least a few of the cards. Those You can use without discarding will bring You more money than the 10 money you paid for them. On top of this there are chances You will get a fish thief or a canned fish. 10 cards out is a steal.

Did it happen, and did you have problems proceeding?

Playing by the rules, cards are added until either there's a buyer or the Market Close card shows up. So if really nobody takes the opportunity, the auction will still end eventually. And while there are cases where 10 cards don't yet give you a profit, and cases where 20+ cards wouldn't give you a profit any more, there is a wide range in between where the buyer can make tons of money (even compared to the fishmonger, who receives a portly commission). As Xeenu said, 10 cards (more likely than not) is a steal. With the folks I game with I'd be happy to ever see 5 cards on the table (scores are rather low in such a cut-throat economy).
