UKIPT Live Stream Could Revolutionize Tournament Coverage
Online streams of live poker tournaments have become a major part of tournament coverage over the past few years, but the poker world has never seen a live stream that can compare to the one currently on display at the Full Tilt Poker website for the UKIPT Galway tournament series.
My first experience with the UKIPT coverage was one of wonder and amazement. I arrived expecting something similar to what the WPT and WSOP use, but was met with something altogether different, and altogether extraordinary –Imagine it’s the year 2010 and you’re going to buy a new laptop and instead the kid at Best Buy hands you an iPad.
Hands down, the UKIPT online coverage is the most comprehensive and innovative that poker has ever seen, combining the accuracy and statistical data of online poker tournaments with the more entertaining video and commentary of live tournaments.
The coverage of the UKIPT Galway Main Event could very well be the next step in the evolution of tournament coverage.
Layout and Features
So what is it about the coverage that has me so spellbound?
Surrounding the video player is a slew of data and information for the event being shown on the live stream, all constantly updated and all accurate. You’ll find everything from entries and remaining players to recent eliminations and the Top 10 chip counts. You’ll even see the countdown clock for the current level.
Additionally there are several “Pop-Up” tabs at your disposal:
* All Chip Counts
* All Bustouts
* Player Search
* Full Updates
All of this information is at your fingertips, easy to find, and contained on a single webpage. It’s truly remarkable, and a breakthrough for tournament coverage.
The Player Search feature is by far the most novel feature of the bunch; not only does it display the table and seat the player is currently at, but it does this by placing the person at one of Full Tilt’s online poker tables. This feature is capable of searching by player or by a table number, with all of the players shown in their correct seats and with their current chip counts; just like they were playing at an online table.
You can get a good sense of what the coverage looks like by imagining you are watching a live stream of a poker tournament and thinking, “I wish I could see x,” or, “too bad they don’t add y to the coverage.” Whatever it is you were hoping for, it is likely already included in Full Tilt’s coverage.
Or, you can just go see it for yourself: UKIPT Coverage at Full Tilt Poker.
