Famous Franke´s Flip Flops Strikes Again

Famous Franke´s Flip Flops Strikes Again

Often it happens that when the sun shines in the summer, people wear flip-flops. However, at our festivals, it has become traditional that regardless of whether the sun is shining, it's raining or there's snow on the ground, the festival's creator, Mr. Martin "Franke" von Zweigbergk, wears flip-flops indoors. This is for a very simple reason. Specifically, those flip-flops need to be "warmed up" in order to form a unique trophy. The trophy is awarded to the player who makes the most flips during the festival.

How "Flip Flops" are working?

"Flip Flops" tournaments are a fun and exciting way to enjoy the game of poker. During the Festival Nottingham, these tournaments will be held at Dusk Till Dawn from Monday through Saturday, providing players the opportunity to earn poker tickets for every successful flip they make.

The tournament format is simple and easy to understand. Each day, players will have the opportunity to participate in several rounds of flipping. Each time a player successfully completes a flip, they will earn one point. At the end of the tournament, the player with the most points/wins will be declared the winner. If at the end of the flip tournaments, two or more players have the same amount of points/wins, then there will take place a final "big flip" which decides which player will be crowned the winner of the title of Franke´s "Flip Flops" and who goes home with a special prize package to our next Malta event.

Participating in a "Flip Flops" tournament is easy and affordable.

  • The entry fee for flips starts at just £20, with no additional rake. This makes it accessible for players of all skill levels and budgets.
  • Flips are running every day (Mon-Sun) from 9 pm - 11 p.m.
  • Registration (buy-in) is done prior to the game starting at the table.

  • If there is some money left after the full payout, then the second best hand will get that
  • Winner of the each game will get 1 point
  • The player who collects most points/wins will get a special trophy and a special prize package(worth of €1600)
