Today is the day that the brand new Flipout Tournaments will launch on Full Tilt Poker. In case you missed the news yesterday about these events, they are tournaments that allow players to flip straight away to get the action started and send everyone that wins the flip right into the money.
During the first round of a Flipout Tournament, all players automatically go all in to determine a winner. From there, the remaining players — the survivors — are reseated in regular multi-table tournament format and the event continues with a standard betting structure. The catch is that all of the players that win the flip in the first round are now in the money.
"Full Tilt Poker is dedicated to the continual evolution of online poker to keep it fun, fresh and exciting; not just for our existing players, but also to help attract the generations coming up,” said Sarne Lightman, Full Tilt Poker’s Head of Marketing. “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 Flipouts, Full Tilt Poker will be hosting a four-day Flipout Festival that boasts $25,000 in added cash and prizes. The festival will begin on Friday, March 21 and consist of 108 tournaments across 12 events. Each of the 12 events features a range of buy-in levels beginning as little as a freeroll. You can learn more about the festival itself by clicking here.
