Please explain about the Auction and the buy-back

A pair is sold to the highest bidder - pairs may bid for themselves if they wish. A pair for whom no one bids must "buy itself" for £100. If a player is purchased by another party, because the winning auction bid is higher than a player in the partnership has offered, either or both players may buy their own pair back. Collectively they may buy back up to 50% of the price paid by the winning bidder (who may not refuse to sell).

There is a buyback premium of 10% of the full auction price. This fee is added into the Auction Pool.

For example, if a pair is sold for £200 and the players buy back half of themselves, they have to pay £120. £100 goes to the purchaser of the pair and the other £20 goes into the Pool).
