Players flip straight into the money and a slower-paced final phase
GGPoker today reveals Flip & Go, the poker room’s latest unique tournament variant.
Designed to make tournament play much more exciting by introducing some innovative twists, Flip & Go tournaments allow players to purchase extra buy-ins at registration and sit down with up to ten times the default starting chip stack.
Once underway, the Flip & Go kicks off with a fast-paced flip out phase in which participants are dealt three hole cards and must discard one before hands are completed. Bonus chips will be added to the stacks of those who are dealt certain three-card poker hands, such as straights and flushes.
The flip out phase of the tournament ends when every table has played down to a single winner, each of whom is now guaranteed a prize. At this point, the rest of the Flip & Go is played out in a standard Hold’em tournament format.
Flip & Go buy-ins start from just $0.01 and tournaments are scheduled every 30 minutes.
“If you want to get straight to the hottest action in a tournament, then Flip & Go is for you,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker ambassador. “Get flipping with a standard stack or super-size your chips from the start; the choice is yours! There are extra stacks on offer during the flip out and a standard game gets underway once you’re in the money.”
New GGPoker players are eligible to claim the poker room’s Welcome Bonus, earn even more rewards with the Honeymoon for Newcomers promotion and automatically join GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program, with regular cash prizes on offer.
