Full Tilt Poker Flips Out

Full Tilt Poker Flips OutAmongst other things, Full Tilt Poker is well-known for being a major innovator in the poker industry, having previously developed such popular games as ‘Rush Poker’ and ‘Adrenaline Rush’. True to form,  the poker room has now invented an innovative variant of poker tournaments that is sure to attract a great amount of interest from gamblers.
On March 19th, Full Tilt Poker will start offering ‘Flipout Tournaments’ which reduces tournaments to a simple coin toss situation, and once registered for doesn’t even require the player to be logged in to win some money. But how do ‘Flipout Tournaments’ work? Well, during the very first hand of a Flipout Tournament, all players around the 6- or 9-handed table will receive 10 chips and automatically be put all in to determine a winner, after which the remaining players will now be in the money.
From there, according to the details given on the Full Tilt Poker website, “most tournaments conclude within a few hands..There is only one blind level with no time limit in a Flip Tournament, and the large blinds and antes ensure that each player goes all in on every hand.”
Promoting the new poker variant, Sarne Lightman, Full Tilt Poker’s Head of Marketing, said ‘Flipout Tournaments’ will allow players to play a quick tournament, while automatically qualifying for the money stage, provided, of course, they win the first toss. In addition, Lightman said that better players will then have a bigger edge over their competitors as “the average skill level when you hit the money will be the same as the average skill level at the start of the tournament.”
To kick-off its new Flipout Tournaments, Full Tilt Poker has announced a four-day Flipout Festival starting March 21st, and boasting 108 tournaments with a total of $25,000 in extra cash and bonuses. Commenting on its new brainchild, Lightman said:
“The only real downside to Flipouts that I can think of is how often you won’t make it past the flip round. If I was playing these I’d probably drop down a couple of stake levels and just play a bunch of them until I made it through.”
