German term or phrase:überbieten (see context)
"...im xxx Halle hatte er zur allgemeinen Überraschaung als Zugabe beinabe ein komplettes uraltes Album gespeilt, und auch die anderhalb Studen zuvor waren kaum zu überbieten."
I am having trouble with the last part of the sentence after "gespeilt." What is the meanig of überbieten in this context? Also, I am not sure if the word "Studen" is "Stuaden" or "Sturden".. it's obscured.
