I use "Book/High contrast/Large
Believe it or not, I almost started a thread just like this after a PM-and-in-game conversation Grampy Bobby and I had where we were talking about board settings, and I found it interesting to the point where I was curious what others use.
I use book/blue day/ large after a lengthy experimentation phase because I have some issues, and I use the "immortal game" interface. By trial and error, I think I see blue contrast better than the others.
I don't think there is a "stronger player/weaker player" connection, but a more informed person may enlighten me on the subject. I chose mine because I have some very minor but occasionally annoying vision issues, and the changes made a big difference for me.
The geek part of me is intrigued by the idea of how this contributes to the difference between OTB and CC- both players have the "essence" of the chess position on the site, but there is a good chance that they see very different boards!
Now if I can just switch boards in my dart league...
