Noble Poker is a skin on the large iPoker Network. They offer PokerTips readers a first time deposit bonus of 200% up to $600, which is very nice.

Noble Poker could do a better job when it comes to offering enticing promotions.
They regularly send players to major live poker tournaments around the world. Their jackpot sit-'n'-go tournaments are unique in the online poker industry, although a major ripoff in terms of value.
This site's scheduled tournaments are littered with satellites and small buy-in tournaments with guaranteed prize pools. A strong selection of sit-n-gos are available, including jackpot tournaments that award big payouts to players who win a certain number of tournaments in a row. For example, there is a $25,000 jackpot to anyone who wins 6 consecutive $20+$3.50 6-max tournaments. Notice that the increased entry fee for these jackpot sit-n-gos render them a bad investment for players of nearly every skill ability.
In 2010, Noble Poker is starting a monthly $1,000,000 guaranteed tournament with a buy-in of $500+$35. It appears these events will take place on the second Sunday of each month.
iPoker's software is very solid and the Noble color-theme is nice. They offer a nice game filter and an acceptable number of table statistics to aid in game selection.
As the iPoker Network as maintained strong growth over the past few years, the games have gradually gotten a little tougher. This site is home to a lot of multi-table grinders that tend to make the games a bit on the challenging side. With that being said, the competition at the smaller stakes is very beatable. The tournament competition is also pretty soft since this site doesn't exactly attract tournament-only grinders as well as some other sites do.
Noble Poker's support team is available by phone, email, fax and chat. This is way above industry average in terms of customer support mediums offered.
