Hi,
I'm new to multi-threaded servers, so just wondering, say, a server has 50 identical requests at the same, does he just treat them randomly, say service maybe request 49 before request 23, for example? A clear example could be 50 people trying to book a ticket on ticketmaster and just be chance 1 of the 50 gets booked. This right?

Yes. No. Actually the main point of multi-threaded servers is that they don't service the requests one at a time. They will be servicing several requests at the same time. So there's no "before".
