Negreanu's Top Flip & Go Tip

The first real decision you have to make in Flip & Go tournaments, is what to discard ahead of the Flip. As this is something many poker players are unused to, we asked Negreanu for his best piece of advice.

"Take a look at some of the other hands to see what is live or dead," he said. "For example, if you have {a-}{9-}{5-} but see the other three {9-} are out, you keep the {5-}.

"It's incredibly easy for beginners. You just have one decision where you get three cards and throw away the one you don’t want, then after that it’s Hold’em as you would normally enjoy it!"

Instantly in the Money

With no bubble or stalling as a result of the flip, players are instantly in the money and Negreanu says that this means the action loosens up straight away.

"Since you are already in the money there is no ICM pressure which means you don’t have to worry anymore about squeaking into the money. If you get a hand, you can get it in!"

Overall, six-time bracelet winner Negreanu says that people will like it because of the pace of play, meaning you get to the exciting part of tournaments straight away.

"It's fast! I do think people will like it. You don’t waste hours hoping to see a profit. You find out quickly if you are in the money and get to the fun end game stuff right away!"
