Does anyone know how much a pro gets for promoting a certain product, cue, etc.
I realize it depends on who it is and what it is but I was curious if anyone had any ideas.

I'm not sure how much money pros receive from their sponsors but I do know some pros get some of their expenses paid for such as hotels, entrance fees, etc.

I have a friend who is in the top 20 $winners in men's pro pool. He had to 'borrow' $5k from his family to buy a car. He is sponsored by more than 5 hi-profile companies.

His w-2 is frightening!

Man that is sad!
Does he really not make that much money or does he gamble it away or something?
I know it takes a lot of money to live on the road, I tried it and went broke in short order.
