Depending on your preference, Guts Poker is available as a downloadable desktop app. On the app home you'll find a toolbar with timers to the next big money tournaments, while a bad beat jackpot counter at the top of the page highlights the amount you could win if you're luck is in (or not, as the case may be). In terms of finding a game, the "play now" button on the homepage will take you to a sortable list of cash games, tournaments and SNGs. If you're not familiar with iPoker sites, the overall look is minimalistic and that makes for a fast, efficient and enjoyable experience.
