2002 Embassy World Snooker Final - Internet Broadcast

Just a reminder that the whole of the final of the 2002 Embassy World
Snooker Championship between Stephen Hendry and Peter Ebdon over the best of
35 frames can be seen live over the internet courtesy of BBC online.

At the following times stated in EDT in the United States, go to the BBC
Sport Snooker website and click on the Live tv coverage link (requires
RealPlayer):

http://www.bbc.co.uk/snooker/

Sunday, May 5

   First Session's play (8 frames):
   10:00 am - 1:00pm

   Second session's play (8 frames):
   3:00pm - 5:30pm

Monday, May 6

   Third session's play (8 frames):
   10:00 am - 1:00pm

   Fourth session's play (11 frames):
   3:00pm - 5:30pm

If session's run longer than the time allocated for broadcast, it is usual
practice for the BBC will stay with it until the very end -- the reason why
the Embassy World Championship concludes on a Monday for which may seem an
odd day, is for the first Monday in May in the UK is a national holiday.

It's a repeat of the 1996 Embassy World Championship final which Hendry won
18-12, and he will start as favorite to pick up the $377,000 first prize and
to win his eighth world title. It should however be a very high-quality
final and one not to be missed.

As we've unfortunately seen yesterday and today this does not apply to the
webcasts.

Yes, that is extremely frustrating.  But I guess we have to remain thankful
that we can get anything at all.  It is amazing stuff.

I know it's free, but this is starting to be a bit annoying. I sure hope I
can see most of the final tomorrow, but also that they manage to finish the
final session well before the maximum possible 11 frames!

(This was the third time in a row they cut out during the last frame of the
session)
