griff,
I play in a Wednesday night league and practice one other day during my lunch hour. I also manage to sneak out for another hour or two one other day. My budget is about $100 per month including food, drinks, table time and league fees. Wow and I'm an infrequent player with really cheap table time.

I currently have three league nights. Monday costs $10 per week. Tuesday and Wednesday dues are both covered by establishments that sponsor my teams. Table time for practice or fun is free, due to league participation.

I mostly drink iced tea or sodas when playing, plus throw a few bucks in the tip jar whether I drink or not.

I guess my biggest expense is probably transportation; ie driving around town to hit the various places to play. Also entry fees (and sometimes table coins) for tournaments, but I think I'm coming out ahead on those.

The trip to 'Vegas each year costs me about $500, and I guess I have a habit of commissioning $900 custom cues and then not wanting to use them /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Got a case and other stuff already.
6. Lessons
Ve don' need no esteenkin' lessons.
7. Drinks,.................
Ow. This part hurts.
8. League fees
$12 per night, two nights a week
9. Transportaion to/from pool hall
Cab is about $7 each way, subway $2.

Yep, it's an expensive game, but if I didn't spend it on pool, it'd just wind up in my IRA or something - you know - useful.

I'm working on a plan to have the government allow us to deduct pool expenses off of our taxes and I wanted to know what the average is. I needed it in writing,...in triplicate.

Since you live so far away, you could send me some drink tickets.
