you can access the feed directly through this link

you can enter it into your media player or stream recording software if you wish to record the video and see it later

Amsterdam is 6 hours in front of New York, so 16:00 in amsterdam is 10:00 in New York

I just watched some live match. Some local guy going down 11:6 to some hungarian I think (by his name)

the video quality is very good, just the on screen texts are not really readable, but hey, who cares? /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

these guys played strong, but they made my day by missing some open shots and dogging possition on occasion

it gets my spirit up to see such quality players to be human (can't say that about the pros in matches I downloaded through DC++, they never seem to miss a shot) especially after getting beat by a 12 year old today /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

the last time I posted here that the text was not readable in the live video broadcast it was corrected very quickly. I do not know if you have anything to do with it but just in case :-) now there seems to be too much brightness set in the video, it all seems like behind a white curtain, the balls sometimes have white ghosts around them

just a feedback, disregard this post if you can not do anything about it

it is great to see the tournament live, thank you very much for letting us know
