On Backgammon Popularity

What makes backgammon a popular game - is it respect or money?


And on the other hand, why is backgammon not that popular?


Because it is not promoted enough or not as sophisticated (or gainful) as other games?

New World Backgammon Champion

Backgammon has a new world champion: Lars "Buster" Bentzon.

The little I know about this guy is that:

1. He's from Denmark - what makes him the 5th Dane world backgammon champion

2. He's a good friend and a former manager of Gus Hansen

3. He never won any major backgammon championship before

4. He's also a poker player, but preferred the 35th annual Monte Carlo World Backgammon Championship over the WSOP (that took place the same time in Vegas).

5. He won about $60,000 in this event.
