Well I see when auctions are ending but it will also say someone won a lot or 2 10 min. or way before the auctions ends. How dose that work?

There are a bunch of different auction types on that site, and they all work differently. I think rather than me explaining them(probably poorly), I will just direct you to the cbid help page that explains them.

used to love cbid but they removed most of the good stuff due to makers not wanting their sticks selling so low
smoked many Fuentes, Padrons, Tatuajes and Illusiones bought for a fraction of their value
I stopped going when the good stuff got yanked, that's ok it used to make for a lot of big weekly cigar bills

Some lots have the "buy it now" option............that would be my guess.I never bid early,I wait til the last 15-20 seconds of an auction to snipe what I want.Just put the lots you're interested in into your "watch lots" and pay attention as they get close to closing.If they are already more than you want to pay delete the watch.......If they are still within reason just watch the countdown and jump in.

I used to dabble with Cbid. Spent time on the forums etc. it was fun. But I rarely got a super deal. I think I get better deals having signed up for the big cigar e-trailer e-mails. They all have daily, weekly, holiday and seasonal sales. If you can wait for the stuff you really want, there are great deals to be had.
