Competitive backgammon players play at all levels of ability. While each player has their strengths and weaknesses, to define how good a specific player is can be answered either subjectively based on another player's opinion or using objective evidence which can be obtained by using bots such as Gnu or Snowie.

Since I'm most familiar with Snowie I'll refresh the reader's knowledge of the ranking system Snowie uses regarding skill level. The lowest rank is Novice and the highest rank is Extra-Terrestrial. In between there is Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, and World Class.
