I don't care for "student" for a level below intermediate.
It's common to hear someone described as a "student of the game",
and such players are usually at least strong intermediates.

"Amateur" also doesn't have the right meaning to me.  
Said with the right tone "amateur" can indicate a low
level of play, but to me the primary meaning is 
non-professional, which is almost everyone who plays 
backgammon, including most experts.

I like everything else, including the "outsider" rookie.
