While I had used the previous versions for occasional interstate family poker, the new ranking system really made playing strangers competitive and therefore addictive over the long term. Of course now, after achieving rank #1 (JGalt) out of 20,000 accounts, I think I need a little more competition. So c'mon GPL zealots, let's shuffle up and deal!
