Since the Casinos have shutdown, I know a lot of US players are looking for play money sites to play private games with their friends on, so I thought I'd pass a long a Poker Melee league I started on /r/poker that is beginning to grow.
What's nice is that it's turn-based so you can play your hands whenever you have a free moment (not everyone has to be online at the same time) and there is a configurable action timeout to keep things moving and you play hands in rapid succession, so you could fold fold fold raise call fold raise and be onto the 8th hand. As you can imagine you can play tons of hands this way, and you only get a hand back when action is on you.
It also uses an ELO algorithm (similar to in Chess) that rates you VS every other player you play with.
The pool is configured for: 6-max, 100bb stacks, 2 day action timeout. Tables will automatically start when enough players join.
I've been trying to get more members into the games, they are very good for it being free, the highest ELO rated players are at least equivalent to NL25 players IMO.
