Full Tilt Poker Introduces new Flipout Tournaments Structure
Full Tilt Poker
is billing their Flipout Tournaments as the "new way to play online tournament poker". Flipout Tournaments will cut out hours of pre-bubble play, and get players to the money quickly, after the first round.
Players are put all-in automatically in the first round, after which the bubble bursts and play resumes for the remaining players with a standard betting structure. All players who make it past the first-round of the Flipout Tournament are automatically in the money and guaranteed a pay-out. Flipout Tournaments are designed to get players to the money faster, without having to play hours on end just to get to the bubble.
Sarne Lightman, Full Tilt Poker
’s Head of Marketing says, “Full Tilt Poker is dedicated to the continual evolution of online poker to keep it fun, fresh and exciting; not just for or existing players, but also to help attract the generations coming up. Flipouts are a game changer – literally unlike any other online poker tournament. Perfect for the time-poor player who wants to jump straight to the post-bubble action with a stack and blind levels that give them plenty of play.”
To celebrate the launch of the Flipout Tournament format, Full Tilt is hosting a four day "Flipout Festival", with $25,000 in added cash and prizes. The festival will start Friday, March 21 and run through Monday, March 24. The Flipout Festival kicks off with a freeroll, and will include 108 tournaments played out over 12 events with a range of buy-ins.
