I sent the video to BBO officials and they said “I gave all this to the programmers, hope they figure it out soon!”

streaming on twitch is pretty easy - the main thing you need is a good internet connection with decent upload speed. While travelling a bit hard to find but at home easy enough. Streaming is heavily PC intensive but a fair chance that your laptop could do it but you would have to try to find out. The first step to doing it is learn to use OBS (Open Broadcast Software) which is free.

Triple Dummy was a video podcast that I did with Nick Jacob and Ellena Moskovsky. I haven't done one in about 6 months but you can check one out here: https://youtu.be/ca_qaKOEZAk?list=PL5wP_e5bJikBsP5TCb7kbdoM_KZhyoJC-

I was having some technical problems that I will get around to solving. I plan to start it up again later in the year.

We will try and do it live at www.twitch.tv/peterhollands"
I am not sure how good the internet is for streaming so it may just have to be watched after.
Edit: I just tested my rental property internet and it isn't good enough for live streaming. I will get the video up ASAP after we finish.

One issue is it is near impossible to know what all the conventional bids are for all the pairs

Thanks Tomislav, I agree that we should be aiming at a wider audience. It didn't come across in my original post but I was just trying to show that it is currently focused some what at the expert and even then a lot of them don't watch and that something needs to change. I think a better less experienced focus is a better approach.

When I stream there is about a 15 second delay - I am currently playing against robots so no issue with pausing the game to answer questions or being trolled. Even playing against players I believe I would have a fair chance of answering some questions in real time. As for being trolled, this is an issue but other streamers in games where this matters just deal with it, yes people can cheat you and it does happen but that is a small cost the streamers pay for a more interesting live feed.

Unless I was playing a seriously high level competition I wouldn't be worried at all about posting what I am doing live. If people wanted to cheat against you on BBO they have so many different ways other then watching your stream.

I have done some BBO vugraph recordings I have done which still have sound. You can check them out through either: https://bridgevid.com/additional-content/

or my youtube channel:

I intend on doing some more vugraph commentaries along these lines in the future but wanted some new ideas.

I think this is an awesome idea, I will try and think of ways to implement this.

As for talking through your thought process as you play, a few people including me do these with the BBO weekly free tournaments. You can find mine either through my website
www.bridgevid.com or my youtube channel. Others worth checking out include Tgwnn or Chris Chung

It is scary how far back some of this stuff could go. I wouldn't like to think that this is something that was coached into them. From a personal point of view I have been coached by Smirnov who recently confessed and I can guarantee all he taught was good bridge not how to cheat, so I would assume it would be similar but looks dodgy.

Thanks, I'll consider it but don't like your chances

I asked Boye but he is currently very busy as you can imagine. Maybe down the track when he has more time
