This is the whois info for a domain I want to buy (I had to write in ( ) because you cant post links with less than 10 posts on sitepoint)

>>> Last update of whois database: Fri, 29 May 2009 19:48:02 UTC <<<
What I dont understand is how it can have status of redemptionPeriod (Redemption Period lasts 30 days and is followed by a 5 day Pending Delete cycle, right) IF the expiration is Novemeber 20, 2009....
How is it possible that the record was updated May 29, 2009 to redemption period and the expiration isnt until November 20, 2009?
I might just be confused, but in any case, whats the best likelihood of me being able to buy it? I have purchased the backordering service through GoDaddy, but should I register it with others like pool, etc? Does that matter?
