How much does a Professional Pool Player make per Year? Average Annual Pro Pool Shark Salary Range

Pool has only been a spectator sport for a short time. Still, salaries of professional pool players can be quite high. The average salary of a good pool player is $34,000, and may range from $21,000 to $95,000. When legal betting comes into the picture, the numbers can climb even higher, or shrink just as easily. The prize for winning the 8-ball world championship is $60,000. Winning other such prizes and gaining corporate endorsements can easily supplement a pro pool player’s salary into something very comfortable indeed.
