      Bunch of people use it for streaming stuff like starcraft etc, but i've never seen anyone stream stuff like their final tables on here. Can we embed a stream in this site like we can with youtube vids?

      It can be easily abused by your opponents?

      Hey,

      We are already using TwitchTV for Collin Moshmans basic coaching.

      Over the next 2 weeks, the following coachings will be live via twitch:

      Tuesday: Sit and Go beginner by Fitzinator18
      Wednesday 1: Pleno1 6max
      Wednesday 2: Collin Moshman on SNG's
      Friday: No Limit by Bierbaer
      Saturday: No Limit by BogdanPS


      The coachings will all be recorded and you will be able to watch them after they have finished too.

      We will continue to use the coaching player for coach interaction.

      Hope you all like it ;)

      Will you keep the materials on your twitch profile indefinitely, or will it be deleted from time to time? From what I understand not every channel keeps its stuff online longer than a month or so, it'd be nice if it was possible to keep the archive up for at least a few weeks.

      Poker is similar to League of Legends, where in League of Legends you need to have a delay on the stream because of ward placements and knowing where your enemy is.

      That being said, the stream could have a 2-3 minute delay so your opponents can't cheat.

      I would like this very much, but I don't see people streaming.
