Just ordered what I think will make for a very nice looking stream setup for home games. We'll have 11 cameras (1 * community cards 7-8 * hole cards and 2-3 * table and player overview cams) and proper lighting, which was kinda missing, when we did the test stream with @UhlenPoker a couple of weeks ago. I'm also trying to sort out a new Unibet branded table, as the Forsters one isn't too pretty. Expect to have the full setup ready in a couple of weeks. The first stream might be with hole card cams just standing on the table, but for next streams I'll try to make some holes in the table and add some plexi glass and camera boxes under it.

Well, I'd love to hear, if you have any good ideas for these home game streams? How can we make it more interesting for you as a viewer? Last time we did some simple competitions where you were to predict the first to bust, and the winner. There also ended up being some chili eating and jumping in the pool from the roof, after a "few" beers. I personally think this worked okay, but want to add a lot more than this, so please share your thoughts! Smile

For the first stream I hope @Jeppe-Unibet@Marco-Unibet@ReCorpH@Kris-Unibet, @UhlenPoker and David Lappin will join, and I expect it to be a late night stream like last time (think we stopped around 3).

Last time was nice stream. Yes we need cams to this stream and maybe some freeroll with tickets as prize so we can watch and play too Smile

A freeroll is definitely an option. I have to say I prefer to do things on the stream though Smile

In case you're interested, here's the hardware: http://amzn.eu/fy11pXH. I'll post some pictures when I start working on the table (cutting the holes, adding the glass, adding the hole card boxes with light and camera etc.) Smile

@Stubbe-UnibetYou can set up a MTT in the near future, for people to qualify and play in this home game. Kinda like the league, but the winner gets a seat in the homegame.

Nice setup, looking forward to seeing the next stream Smile

For giveaways, a betting competition like at the UO would be awesome, but would take a lot of time to set up and keep track of all the results. Best thing would be to inform the mods of the possible giveaways beforehand so they can manage them.

And/or get skype commentator(s) to manage and entertain the chat Cheeky

Throw in some side action like forfeits for players when they lose to a shown down 72o for example. Could make for some fun action.

@MathrimC, a betting competition is doable, but probably not for the first tournament, as there's a lot of other important stuff (like trying to sort out a table in time Very Happy )
I really like the idea of letting members do some commentary through e.g. Skype! I think we can already try this next weekend, if there're no issues with the tech. Just need some volunteers  Smile

Right now it looks like the first proper stream will be Saturday next week from 21:00 (probably going to be delayed a bit as usual Very Happy ) till late. I think we'll use Espens channel for the first one.

@MoreTBC, great! Smile
Ideally we'd have 2-3 commentators who'd also be in charge of giveaways and competitions

For now the stream is scheduled for Saturday the 13th 21:00 CET

EDIT: forgot there's an MMA event in Malta on the 13th, so it'll have to be Friday instead Smile
