"I've always had money since I was little," he says, "because in pool they can pay you [whatever your age]. Whenever you're older, it's one of the worst-paying jobs."

This attitude worries Wilson: "He's been playing thousand-dollar games for years. The excellence of the sport and becoming a world champion has lost some of the luster."

Bergman readily admits he'd rather win money than trophies. "[When] you beat somebody out of money, you can win a lot of money, and nobody really knows about it except for the people that were there."
