I'm a pool player as well, I used to be, anyway. I'd argue there are some monster differences between the two scenes. First, pool players are not going to accept you unless you can already play. You have 1000 hours of hard-core practicing before you can even get to "sucker" status on the pool player ladder. Plus, pool players are very often broke and because they are all on a grind, their mission is to beat you out of whatever they can any way they they can. Backgammon, on the other hand, is an easy game to get half way decent at, and the people are generally nice, well mannered and smart. Having said that, there's nothing more exiting than watching high-stakes pool action at any level.
