5. Beer goes in your mouth
Drinking the beer should be the last thing on your mind when it's your turn to flip. Just throw it in your mouth and worry about swallowing it later. Focus on the flip, not the sip. We just made that phrase up, but it sounds accurate because it rhymes.
6. Flip for it
Flipping is a two-handed process. Pick the cup up and set it down with the same hand, and flip with the other. That way there's no wasted movements setting and flipping with the same hand. And NEVER try to flip the cup twice, unless you want to look like a n00b and have the entire flip cup community shun you.
7. Two fingers for success
This champion-approved technique will have you flipping perfectly. Rest two-thirds of your middle finger under the bottom rim of the cup, and make sure to keep it slightly bent. Our expert says this allows greater control during the whole flip because it allows more of your finger to stay on the cup longer; this technique lifts the cup instead of just blindly tapping it, like some sort of fool! For novices, he'd recommend the use of both index and middle fingers, as it'll stop the cup from rolling left or right off your finger. Also make sure to keep your elbow and arm both flat and perpendicular to the table. After each flip, you should be ready to flip again if necessary. That's critical.
