Let me get this straight
 
So let me get this straight - according to the latest Ptips article that upwards of tens of people are reading, some poker players are streaming their game for others to watch - live.

I should start playing the nose bleed games with one of these streamers. Let's see how quickly read I can their hands.

Yeah, I've been noticing more of these streams popping up. Don't they make money based on how many people tune in?

The streams have a 3-5min delay

I would hope longer than that. Conceivably one (or more) could drag out the time on each action to the point that people could see their hole cards before the end of the hand.

You are reading too much into it. Whatever the maximum wait count for all players is, the stream delay exceeds that.

What is their purpose? And why they need to stream it? I just confused, to flaunt their winner? What if they are loser? LOL.

Some do it to show off, or to help others, or for attention, and in Jcarver and Jaimestaples cases they've ended up with sponsorship as a result of their streaming
