Not always...I've lost a couple of bids like that because eBay asks for a max bid, so if you want to spend up to $200 on something, but the highest bid is $100, it will bid like $110, and if someone else bids under $200, your bid goes up....
Say the bid right now is $50. Person X bids $100, but eBay only goes to $60. Then Person Y bids $80, but he is automatically outbid, because Person Y is then set to pay $85...
Sorry if it was unlcear lol...that was the only way I could think of explaining it
