This is a discussion on Poker on Twitch within the online poker forums, in the Online Poker section; How do you prevent people from seeing what you have?
Anyone had any experience streaming their games?
Most streamers use a significant (5 min) stream delay so their viewers can "see" their cards per se, but what they were 5 minutes ago. Other streamers put some weird graphic over their cards and stream real-time. Don't do that if you want viewers imo
Delay is good because then you don't show your cards. There is one Finnish streamer who shows the tables in 3min delay but is chatting without delay. It's hard to play because he can't comment the hand or bad beat straight away. He has to wait the 3min that the hand is on the stream and then he comment that. That's fun and more social aspect
