Earn 100 million HKC hustling online.
This trophy can be the most time consuming in the game. I recommend boosting this trophy. You do not need to have 100,000,000 HKC in your possession to receive this trophy, you just need to have won a cumulative amount of 100,000,000 HKC. (check how much you have won, under "My Profile".)
If you are going to boost this trophy, This is the best method to use:
2 players need to meet in a room (lobby). The 1st player challenges the 2nd player wagering 1,000,000 (I am only using 1 mil as an example) HKC . Player 2 accept the challenge. The game starts. Player 1 breaks the balls and then either chooses Solids or Stripes or gets lined up for the next shot. Immediately after the break Player 1 purposely quits the game and exits back to the lobby. This will automatically transfer the money to Player 2. Player 2 then initiates the challenge in return for the same amount of money. Player 2 then repeats the quit match process, and the funds are returned to Player 1. This is repeated until both players have acquired 100,000,000 HKC in winnings to unlock the trophy. This process is repeated until both players have obtained the trophy. Regardless of whether or not you lose every other game, you still get credit for the winnings in your Profile and stats.
Complete career mode.
This is one of the harder trophys in the game. You have to beat every event in: Rookie, Amateur, Semi-Pro and Pro. You Do Not need to complete any insane events. Events from Semi-Pro to Pro can get very hard, you will have almost no margin for error, and the AI ha some pretty unbelievable skills. You should make good use of the Quit via XMB method, in the later levels, as this will save you replaying events for HKC.
Luck is an Art
Beat someone else who has this trophy.
This trophy is similar to GTA4s Let Sleeping Rockstars Lie
, you must beat a player that has this trophy. It is easily found on almost every player online, if you are having trouble receiving it, you can ask other players if they have it, and if they will let you beat them for the trophy.
8-Ball clearance in under 40 seconds.
This trophy can be fustrating, as you can have trouble getting a good setup, you pretty much just have to pot every ball in one break. The time is measured by when balls are moving on the table, it starts from when you hit the cue ball, to when your HKC bonus is added to the top right corner. So take your time to set up the shots. You should attempt this trophy in "exhibition" mode, select 8 Ball, easy difficulty and long aiming line. You will more often than not, require multiple attemps at this trophy.

Win 100 online games.
A very time consuming trophy. I would recommended boosting this, as most of the players left online are all elite players, and/or trying for the trophy just like you. The quickest way to boost this is at the same time as Hustle King!
, If you still need wins after boosting Hustle King!
The quickest way to gain wins, is for your opponent to exit the match as soon as player has chosen strips or solids, in an 8 ball game.
Pot a ball using each of the 4 different skill shots: jump shots, swerve shots, bank shots and plant shots.
These shots do not have to be pulled of in the same match,The swerve shot is the hardest to pull off. (training mode, and trick shots do not count towards the trophy)
Each shot is as followed:
Jump shot By me:
Swerve Shot By SnakeEaterDan
Bank Shot By Swordfisher1969
Note: A bank shot is either preformed by the cue ball bouncing of the side and potting a ball, OR the cue ball hitting another ball into the side, and that ball being potted.
Plant Shot By cap27
Hustle a player online.
For this trophy, you must beat a player online, in a match that is being played for a HKC prize. You can challenge a player to a match and select any amount of HKC to wager. If you are having trouble getting this, you can ask a player to let you beat them for a small amount of HKC (100 HKC is the lowest stake you can bet)
Trick Shot Wizard
Complete all trick shots.
This trophy involves completing the 12 events located in Offline Play. Not Career mode, although some of the Career mode trick shot events are the same as these ones. You will unlock more trick shots as you progress through Career mode. Read the Tip at the Start of the shot and Watch the AI sink the required Ball(s), this will give you a good idea of what you need to do to complete this trophy. You need to be patient during these events, and focus on skill and accuracy, take your time. Notice that if you fail at completing the shot, your next shot will be exactly how your last shot was set up, i.e you will be able to fine tune the next shot from how the last shot was setup.
License to Hustle
Complete training mode.
The Easiest trophy in the Game. Upon your first start up of the game, you should be prompted to start training mode. Select Yes, Training mode will take you through the basics of the game, and will also teach you a couple of advanced techniques. This should be the first trophy you get, As i recommend completing training mode before you begin to play the game.
Win a career mode game.
Another easy trophy, simply win your first game in Career, (must be against another player, e.g not a skill shot event.) If you had trouble getting this trophy than you should not be playing this game.
Swerve or Jump to pot a ball.
This trophy is Easier than it sounds, you should have learnt how to preform both these shots in training mode. (you will not receive the trophy in training mode) I would recommend going for a jump shot for this trophy, as it is easier to predict the path of the ball. If you see one of your balls in front of a pocket, just preform a jump shot to knock it in. You Do not
need to jump over another ball to get this.
Here is one of my jump shots that i preformed:
