My question is this.

Does the server have enough juice to broadcast to all these people hooking up and watching at the same time? I have high speed cable, if I watch the match is it going to be smooth? Just wondering.

If I understand live streaming video correctly, the way it works is each audio/video packet is sent to the ISP, and is propogated to multicast addresses at the ISP (working off an addressee list sent by the streaming feed), and the ISP is actually the one to blast it out to the real world.

From a technical viewpoint, I think the TAR crew is only sending out one set of packets.. They are not individually serving 100's of viewers. They just send it out once, and that feed is repeated by the ISP to all the customers. So assuming they don't have 1000's of people watching this feed, the ISP will not even be stressed.

Am I off here?

You're mostly right. It might be 1000's of people watching and be fine depending on what kind of service they are paying for.

Somebody said sumpin sometime ago about the UStream feed getting better when MORE people watch it because UStream gives more bandwidth to popular feeds with lots of viewers.

I think that there is more action between people on this match than in any of the Action Challenges between the pros.

Too Funny!

Pre match analysis, lol

If you just go by the posts, it would appear that Cubc may have a slight edge. But I can't see OMGWTF getting into this without her believing she's got the edge.

So much time has gone by since this thing got started and I think that gives OMGWTF an advantage in that whatever her skill level was at a month or so ago, she's had ample time to focus and ramp up her game a bit. Maybe Cubc can do the same but a race to 8 (Edit- Just learned it was 8 ahead, aye chihuahua, so this is wrong. lol) is a little short and with the spot, anything can happen here.

I'll make a list of my assumptions based on reading the tea leaves. So basically, I'm talking out of my a$$, but here it is anyways. lol

Breaking - Advantage Cubc - I'm assuming that Cubc weighs more than OMGWTF.

2 through the money balls - Advantage OMGWTF especially with the spot

Experience under pressure - Advantage Cubc - This is big. I'm guessing this is why a lot of money is going in his direction.

Preparation - Advantage OMGWTF

Location - Advantage OMGWTF - Closer to home.

Table type - Slight advantage to Cubc.

Key to the match, Cubc's breaking. If Cubc's break is erratic, or even just plain unlucky, he's gonna be in big trouble.

Any other comments? It's an open forum. As you see, you don't have to know what you're talking about. :D

( Edit 5/19 - Looks like I was completely wrong about the breaks and experience under pressure and the table type. lol )

have you seen omg break? it's pretty damn good. i wouldn't say that there's an advantage either way. (i haven't seen cubc break on a big table)

i don't know about the experience under pressure either. omg's a competitor and has finished high in many am events. i'm not sure what cubc's experience under pressure is.

table type...because omg plays in a bar box league? not sure why there's an advantage either way here.

regardless, i'm just hoping for a good match.

Should start at 1pm Vegas time, and I think TAR will be streaming through their site.

Yeah I'm hoping for a good match too. Both players have really stepped out of the box on this one to say the least! lol


I'm pretty sure I've seen OMGWTF shoot on a barbox a little over a year ago, but that was just practice. She had good form and a pretty consitent pre shot routine. Kind of looked like an APA 5 or 6, but it was tough to tell. She may have been just looking for action as it appears she wasn't in the APA singles tourney last year, but maybe she showed up for the mini events, I'm not sure. Didn't see a break.

I have to say Cubc seemed pretty confident in offering $500 to anyone here on the forum. Maybe just testing the water, I don't know. I've never seen him play. My gut tells me this is about as even as it gets, but my gut tells me a lot of things. lol

I've got my faith in OMGWTF to the tune of $100 already so I'm set. It would be interesting to hear what folks really think about the match. Maybe it'll kick up a little more action. :)

The weather here is beyond perfect.Really.It's one of those days when everyone mentions how they wish all days would be like today.Sunny,light breeze,70 or so I'd guess.

At four O clock I will foresake it all and be trapped right where I sit.

I can see the feed but it freezes as soon as the page loads. Anybody else having this problem? right now there's a guy in a white and blue shirt shooting down the left side of the table... and it's frozen.
