I was bidding on a name in a private auction with only one other bidder. The price went over the limit I set, checked whois and the winner was ultsearch. Never gone head to head with them before although they got a few names I was after on pool.

Not really though: they STILL have a ceiling for every domain. So unless it's like sex.com (which is worth that million), even Ultsearch or BuyDomains won't throw in more than necessary.
Co-Founder@HostHideout. Profoundly influenced by #Bauhaus, @Nameslave unrepentantly embraces #Minimalism with a bias for functionality, color theory and pixel precision: a #multimedia messenger in the McLuhan sense. His totally irrelevant M.Ed. dissertation examines Organizational Culture and Change Management. He also likes Patrik Ervell, Wong Kar-wai and IKEA.
Bashar and RN are correct. If they really want a name, you are not going to beat them in a head-to-head auction. As for the rest of your statement, it's just pointless and redundant, because obviously they are not going to throw away big bucks on a crap domain, but that's true for anybody with reasonable intelligence.
If they really want a good name, and it's a head-to-head bidding auction, 99% you can forget it.
Originally posted by snoop he is also one of the most successful players which probably explains his millionaire status.
Only partially true. The money and success was not made from domains alone.
