Shall this be in the rules?

Procedure For Closing Bids

You must enter 1x - 2x - 3x - sold - your rank and the rank you are recognizing on separate lines before the game is officially sold to give everyone ample opportunity to bid. Example:

# 3 has 25 1x

#3 has 25 2x

#3 has 25 3x

Sold to 25 table #xx

You are not required to count out every bidder - only the highest bidder. Only the original player taking bids may close the bidding process.
