There are plenty of dedicated, ambitious players out there, but you have to allow each to handle that dedication on their terms. Demanding 4 hours a day simply to demonstrate their drive or ability, is expecting a lot from most people.

All they really need is to be able to play, have a pro attitude, and the desire to work towards success with like-minded players. As soon as you start imposing a 4-hour requirement, you're going to lose a lot of potential brilliant players, as well as attract some overly-fanatic players, which brings its own problems.
