Why is there so many of these amatuer tours displyed and promoted more than the what we call the AAA players or semi-pro tournaments? I believe that these guys that are truely head and shoulders above the rest that they should definitely get more promos so they can possibly get a sponser. What do you think?

Here's an obvious answer: There are 100x more amateur players than AAA/semi-pro players. Also, there are plenty of opportunities for the players you speak of. They already participate in several tours, including the Viking Tour, Joss Tour, Planet Pool Tour, and others. Tours like the Fury Tour should remain the way they are...for the actual amateur players. There is very little sponosorship in pool, even for the pros. The IPT is their opportunity to make big bucks, and anyone can try to qualify for that tour.
