Tournament blue is my favorite - can get dirty looking faster than green, but if you keep the balls and cloth clean, it is clearly superior to green

I voted 'other' because I like Powder Blue. It's even lighter than tournament blue.

Powder Blue is my favourite. Iíd take Tournament Blue over Green but both are great. Anything else is novelty, not that that in itself is necessarily a bad thing.

I couldnít imagine blue on a snooker table though, they need to stay green. It all looks so good with their color scheme.
We even changed our 10' snooker table to blue, that's what the players wanted. I would say we don't really have snooker players more like pool players on a snooker table.

Green is traditional and is still ok but Tournament Blue is simply better for playing on.
Maybe its because the green on pool tables is too dark compared to tournament blue. Light green probably would not look very appealing. I have heard that humans see more shades of green than any other color.

Played on PB once and didn't like it at all. Not enough contrast at least for me. Hardly if ever see it in rooms. Whatever floats ur boat.

I agree. Could have been thought-out a tad better. Convoluted? No. Nothing overly complex about it. IMO OP should have just used two options: Tournament Blue & Green. That's really all you see these days in tournaments.

Went with the Euro Blue thinking the OP meant tournament blue.
Green gets dingy looking with age and darkens a poolroom. Tournament blue brightens the room and ages better.


Pool may not build character but it certainly will reveal it.

I changed from green to blue without changing anything else in the room...it makes a difference.
