The bid placed earlist would win (well, assuming no
other higher bids were placed). You tell esnipe
exactly when to bid (its accurate to a few seconds).

No two ebay bids occur at exactly the same time, even
with a sniping service. So even if we both tell
esnipe to bid 5 seconds before the auction ends. One
may be placed 5.01 seconds and the other perhaps 4.99
seconds before the auction ends. Depends how the
server ques us up...
