Currently in the process of building my first poker table. I'm a low budget but I was able to get all the material at a reasonable price. I just need the suited speed cloth now but cannot choose the color.

For sure it is a matter of taste so if you please post pictures of your table with suited speed cloth I ll have real examples.

Thx!

I went real cheap with the suited speed cloth I found on Amazon and I regret it. The suits are misshaped and I didn't pick up on it until it was too late. I went with blue and it is too dark for my liking. I'd do a lighter color next time as I think it looks better when trying to take chip pics.

So moral of the story, don't go cheap on speed cloth, find it from a reputable seller.

One word of advice, don't buy the cheap suited speed cloth from Amazon. I ordered the burgandy and it's cheap and had defects on the first order and a replacement order.
I have heard some Amazon vendors fold the cloth instead of rolling it. So it arrives with creases.

I 'd advocate for (very) dark felt colors, reflecting as little as possible of the (supposedly and necessarily very strong) lighting from above, and letting chips do the job :)

I 'd go with either charcoal / black or forrest green

The following one is not SSC, but still makes my point

I’d also vote for a dark color. Let the chips pop!

Classic casino green here. Easy on the eyes, familiar color. It looks aged without SSC, but with that it looks quite nice.

I think a lot is taste though. I recommend against a red, even though it really pops - the red suites look funny on it. I'd imagine blacks would have the same issue.

My first table build I went with classic green felt and a brown rail. A lot of things I would do differently now with this build, but I still like it.

Second table I built I went with black on black, which my friends all love.

I'm going to build a 3rd table soon, I think I'm going with the blue felt and black rail.

Black rail is a win, even though it shows junk pretty easy.

What color blue? Baby blue looks pretty sweet, but my wife doesn't like it for some reason! LOL.

I agonized as well and even asked my group of players which one was their favorite from the Texas Poker Supply SSC options. I got 5 or 6 different opinions on it. I ended up ordering platinum and it should arrive in the next week or so. I hope I like it!
