I recently took a lesson from a well know pro. I explained I wanted to get a lot better.
He said how many hours could I devote to pool? I said 2 - 4 hours per day six days a week. He said I would get better but reach the level I wanted without more table time.
Thanks

I think there should be a list of workers that play good, instead of pool players that also work because they can't make a living (or don't want to) playing pool.

Which would be every B and A player I know.

What I find very interesting is that the more white collar a player is, the more likely they are to be an A- or B player vs the guys that have less education or have construction/landscaping jobs, more of those are A players. Almost every B player I know is in engineering, computers, etc... It's almost spooky, even new players that I meet, invariably if they are a B player, they sit at a desk for a job or at least have gone through school for that.
