The payouts at some of these tournaments is ridiculous. How much are these players being sponsored to make going to these things worth their time?

That is basically the same payout as the world horseshoe throwing championships lol.

Who do you suggest they get this increased sponsorship from? Maybe they should start wearing Nike apparel and get a 7-figure sponsordeal from them. Think that'll work?

Well I'm pretty sure with all the cue companies, table manufacturers, accessories that the pool industry is pulling in more revenues than the horseshoe throwing business.

I hear ya. I have alwahs had a simar commute, then got a new job not too long ago with a 15 min commute. 45min, on my widdle bicycle.

I would absolutely encourage everyone to eliminate as much commute as possible. Quality of life improves dramatically.

Sure they do...they can refuse to play in events. They can stop endorsing products for free.

Sure has...I am going to enter the US open next year just to make a point about it. If I get to the final table I will grab the mic and let everyone know the situation of professional pool. I will then proceed to play the final with a broom stick of which I will have as a sponsorship from just to prove that the cue isn't all that important.
