The auctioneer may open bidding on any lot below reserves by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the reserve amount, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. For lots that are offered without reserves, unless there are already competing bids, the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, will generally open the bidding at half of the low estimate for the lot.
