hours upon hours of practice and tour play. much $ spent for hotels / food / travel with no reimbursement until you get good enough to maybe pay for your expenses then graduate from there.

Dear Sher_Amf,

From beginner to pro is a long and hard journey. Only very special players can make it to the status of pro. and it lies in the hands of "the master". The master sends out pros to look for potential "pro status" players. If they think your good enough, they will send you to training camp to achieve full status of pro, and a spot on the tour. Some of our fellow EPT players have been chosen. Andrei, Chambero, Miko, NBC, poolplayer, supremo, thephantom, tups, pacman, Allenjo and myself have made it to that status. Be on the lookout for them at playdium, play there as much as you can. Wear a black shirt and jeans, it will be easier for them to spot you and check out your game. Also, be patient. Some pros have waited almost 30 years to be chosen, a good example is Buddy Hall (one of the best 9 ball players in the game). And finally, get a nice flashy cue. 600 pesos should cover for a nice bing or cuetec cue. Keep shooting and all the best!.
Respect few, Fear none.

I myself am waiting to be picked by the master. I wear my black shirt and jeans everytime I play. I really hope the time will come when I will be lucky enough to be chosen.
