For our show “Potti’s Poker Night”(Youtube) we are streaming all hole cards and win probabilities to our viewers. This article is going to explain to you how to do the same.

A Moment of the first Season of Potti`s Poker Night (still in the "old" unmasked.poker design)

Step 1: Create a coaching table

Showing hole cards to spectators is part of our coaching features. To create a coaching table you first need to create a club. Each of the players in your stream must be a member of the this club or they will not be able to join the table.

  • go to the unmasked.poker club page
  • if you have not already done so, create a club by pressing the plus button
  • go to games and create a game
  • use the copy invite link button to get a table link containing an invite link to your club
  • send this link to every other player. When they follow the link they will be able to join your club and take a seat at the table.
  • go to the table your self
  • find and click “acquire coaching privileges” in the sidebar to the right
  • go to settings (gear icon int the sidebar)
  • switch to advanced settings
  • find a setting called “Allow coaching”, press the “Enable Coaching” button
  • from now on all players will be notified about the table being a coaching table and people possibly being able to see their cards

Step 2: Create a new user to do the streaming

As you probably do not want to see all hole cards your self while playing, you need to use a second user in a second browser for that.

  • open the table invite link from Step 1 in a new browser context. You will have to use a different google account for this.
  • join the club using any name, something like "streamer" might be a good idea

Step 3: Make the cards visible for the streaming user

Option A:

  • assign the second user the coach role in the “members” page of the club
  • when visiting the table with the streaming user, click “acquire coaching privileges” in the sidebar
  • make sure you did not forget to enable coaching mode for the table
  • coaches(with acquired privileges) can see all hole cards while not being seated

Option B:

  • enable the “show all cards in public setting”
  • now every unseated player can see hole cards, even if not being coach

Step 4: Delay your stream for 5 minutes or so

  • this is for example possible with obs or twitch
  • it will prevent your players from peeking into your cards by watching the stream

Step 5: Customize the streamed view

  • you can change the look of your table in your club lobby (tab "Branding"). You need to have the role Manager or Brand Officer to do so.
  • or you can choose between different color schemes by pressing "c" at the table.
  • you can adjust the size and position of all table elements by holding down "shift" and using your mouse to drag or turning the mouse wheel.
  • choose any sidebar-panels you like to show to your audience by (icons in the lower part).
