I address this mostly to Europeans but not only.... does it worth playing proffesional billiards if you're not yet in the top 50 lets say... i mean i quit playing 2 years ago after winning the national championship cause i thought there's not enough money in billiards... am i wrong? Let me put it this way - how much money do u people make out of this?

PS I live in Romania.

Alex,

Have you played any of the top Euro players, Babica, Ortmann, Petroni etc. and how have you fared against them? How much did you win for the Romanian championship?

It's not about the money, and it shouldn't be about the money, if you were expecting to make lot's of money in this business I'm afraid you picked the wrong one. Play because you love the game not because you want to make money off of it.

Wally,

Never played outside of Romania... so I don't know what can I do in front of Ortman... what I know for sure is that I can certainly improve my game further... my best performance in a contest was 5 brakes in a row... the prize for winning the romanian championship was 2000 usd.

now, let this be understood, I love the game, I really do... but a man has to make a living for himself right... I mean at least 50 grand a year just to live decently... otherwise you're not a man...
