Action never ends at Full Tilt Poker and this weekend, the poker company celebrates its latest project which is already popular with their savvy audience. The Flipout Festival is in full swing and will come to an end on Monday, so there is still plenty of time left to take advantage.
The Flipout Festival brilliantly combined entertainment with profitable tournaments and some prominent Team Pro members are an integrate part. A total of 108 tournaments run live on these days and players are competing for a slice of a total prize pool of $25,000. Those who suffer an untimely elimination can jump back in the fray and the original format allows players to register up to three times.
What happens online doesn’t necessarily stay online, as both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker will be promoting the Flipout tournament at live venues. The PokerStars European Poker Tour Vienna will include a Flipout freeroll and it is scheduled to take place on March 23rd at 11:30 am. The winner will secure a seat at the €5,300 EPT Vienna Main Event, but all participants will enjoy the unique and thrilling experience of being a part of something new and innovative.
There is another reason to log in to your Full Tilt Poker account this weekend, as the Gus Hansen Versus Viktor “Isildur1” Blom Team Pro Finale starts on Sunday at noon. The two poker pros will go head to head in an epic confrontation, but their teams won’t stay idle either. Players from all over the world have been fighting for a place at the showdown and they will be rooting for their favourites while facing each other at the poker tables.
Full Tilt Poker’s poll has been running for weeks now and revealed some interesting facts about those who had to choose between joining Hansen or Blom. Most of the questions were unrelated to poker, as players were asked whether they would choose the Swede or the Great Dane as a wingman. Hansen won by a comfortable margin, but Blom was favoured by most when it came to teaching them the art of playing poker.
Players had divergent opinions when asked about the team they credit with the first chance to win and even though Viktor had the most votes, Team Hansen actually won the freeroll. The two poker pros are evenly matched and the confrontation promises to be exciting on so many levels, that players are bound to follow it live this Sunday. There are training matches scheduled for March 23rd and each is worth $1000, but the highlight of the day will be the Main Event showdown that starts at 13:30 ET.
