Hey guys, I hope everyone is doing well!

So after what feels like an eternity, I have finally decided to resume my blackjack career. On a previous thread I discussed the possibility of forming a blackjack team using live streaming, so I wanted to let you guys know that if anyone is interested in watching my first stream I am planning a trip for the end of April. I have created a private Facebook group where I will be live streaming my play and I can give an invite to any players that want to view it. I will be traveling with a friend / partner that I have teamed up with many times over the years, he uses Hi-Lo Il18 and I will be using the same system / spread as him. For the sake of team play, I will not be using AO2 as it is much easier to track the playing as I believe most players are Hi-Lo players.
We have not decided the exact date or location yet, I will let you know when we have decided that. Would love to hear your thoughts or any questions you have and let me know if you want to join the group!

- Omega

Isnít one of the principles of Advantage Play to stay under the radar? Seems like a broadcast is antithetical?

No not that I'm aware of, I have no interest in staying under the radar. I would rather network and share my play with others.

Make some kool uniforms. Most BJ teams don't merchandise properly, although I once saw a guy at the Wild West wearing a Black Belt in Blackjack tshirt.
Good luck. It's a rough road ahead.

Great idea, maybe even get sponsors!

If it's not on YouTube, it doesn't exist.

I can stream it to YouTube as well if that's what players prefer, there is a player that goes by the name Dark Starr that does this.

i would assume people are trying alot of different things to reveal who you are at this point. these are are joking replys - because im telling you right now - live streaming is alot harder to censor things such as logos and colors and faces if you are pointing your camera up.

i know i suggested embedding the camera in your clothing, but im telling you right now even the live streamers have difficulty with streaming because of bandwidth. I say good luck unless you have already gone through with the test run, but once the people see any sign of any casino you are at, they will cross reference it with the relative days you are in the casino and ask their buddys to look you up. I can assure you.

Thanks for the response heatmap! I dont mind the joking replies, to be expected on this forum. Some members contribute by offering mature and intellectual debate and some offer little more than comedic nonsense. Can't have a circus without a few clowns though right?

On the first point, I genuinely appreciate your advice and concern for players who wish to remain anonymous. However I personally couldn't care less about that. For anyone reading that cares, my real name is Jay and I'm a 34 yr old white male with blonde hair..run tell it!

On the second point, operating the stream with clarity and reliability are my main concerns. I have not tested it yet, it will be hard to get a feel for what you can actually make out until we get into an actual casino setting. This is basically what this upcoming trip will be, a good test phase.

Using a streaming device in a casino will get you arrested and sentenced to jail.
Hopefully you will still be streaming for the glory of it and for all of us in your county jail.
