Full Tilt Poker in line with its reputation of being an industry innovator has once again launched an all-new innovative poker tournament variant Â– Flipout Tournaments. Owing to the fact, that it was Full Tilt Poker that gave us popular games like Rush Poker and Adrenaline Rush, the poker industry is buzzing with anticipation for this brand new variant that works on a unique concept combining the features of flip and shootout tournaments.
The reports suggest that this new variant of poker tournaments will be made available on the Full Tilt Poker client to players starting today, i.e. March 19th. Having said that, what can one expect from such a tournament is the most important question that comes to mind!
So how does the tournament work?
Well, during the very first hand of a Flipout Tournament, all players around the 6 or 9-handed table will automatically be put all-in to determine a winner and with that the tournament will send everyone that wins right into the money. That means you flip straight away and get a chance to cash out in a tourney without the hassle of the long grinding hours. Sounds very tempting, doesnÂ’t it?
The remaining players after the first round of the flip, i.e. the survivors are re-seated in regular multi-table tournament format and the event continues with the conventional tournament structure.

To celebrate the introduction of Flipout Tournaments, Full Tilt Poker is also hosting a four-day Flipout Festival from Friday, March 21st that will include 108 tournaments played across 12 events, with $25,000 in added prize money and other Full Tilt Poker benefits. The festival includes freeroll sit n go tournaments to get players accustomed to the format and possibly some other surprises are yet to be announced.
