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.
