Who are the top players in USA that work?
 
Who are the top guys or girls that work 35-40 hours a week regular jobs and still play great pool?

Two I can think of are Mitch Ellerman and Mike Dechaine.

I'm sure there are a lot more.

Most if not ALL really GREAT pool players- or any great accomplished athlete / sports figure had at least some period in their life where they did NOT work and only focused on the sport itself before they were considered GREAT. Ray Martin worked full time until he gave it up for pool- Jack Colavita always worked full time. Mizerak was a school teacher for a while- I don't think guys like Varner, Seigel, Rempe, Hopkins, Fusco etc. ever really worked full time before they were great players. Just from a bygone era perspective.

Dennis Hatch has a used car lot in South Bend.

Dennis Hatch owns a used car dealership.

Dennis hatch.

Cars.

Used ones.

Sell em.

IMHO Hatch doesn't count.
Donnie counts, because he is always working.

I'll say George.
As he has said 10 million times before, work with him for a week and he will play anyone in the world pool. Maybe it was for a month, but you get the idea.

Who's the guy in California that sells insurance? Plays real strong in the West Coast events. Brian Parks?

Rodney Morris.

Last time I talked to him, he just got a job at the Porsche dealer in Orlando. He is in their training program to be a salesman. He seemed pretty happy about it. With his outgoing positive personality, I think he will do great at it.

John Gabriel. From barbox tourneys to derby 1p he routinely runs deep in killer fields.

Thatís great for him but I donít think he plays pool any more

Zion Zvi works as a cab driver in NY last I checked and still plays top notch.

Does running multiple leagues and tournaments count? Cause if it does, Tony Robles does that.
