New Flipouts tourneys on FTP
Full Tilt Poker
recently added a new type of MTT into its software. It is called Flipout and it's basically a mixture of flip tourney (gamble) and regular tourney. In the first stage, all players are all-in and the winners from each table get through to the second stage (where everyone is ITM already) and then it is played normally.
I've been wondering whether to give it a go or not. I'll probably try few of them just for fun. I guess it's rather gamble but still, when I think it through, it doesn't have to be that bad..Statistically, you are going to win your all-in shootout in one out of nine times (in 9max) but then you are going to compete againts probably quite poor (random) competition and so you have a decent chance to win whole thing.
What are your thoughts about this? Does anyone have some experience with these tourneys yet?
