Funny thread. The question in the title is different from the question in the OP which is different from the question many people are answering.

I think this depends on the situation. Sometimes age gives you the edge.

Re: Does Aging Always Destroy Poker Players' Career?

here is where old age gives you an edge. if i am playing in a new place i can bluff the better tighter players there easily as they figure an old guy has the nuts when he moves in. i pick my spots for it when it will be big pots so as to not give it away cheaply.

The idea that your tournament game peaked in 1996 is wild.

It just looks like younger players are better. They got to play millions of hands and play catch up quick with the older guys.

Also motivation is a bigger factor, being single with no kids you can grind and study all day with no side businesses or other distractions. Even the guys who make a ton of money in their 20s-30s will get distracted by side ventures and not be as good 20 years from now relative to now, but will be making more money doing other things

the older players that are good players will know whether you are ready to call or want to fold and bet accordingly.
if it's a lot harder to put you on a range in a given spot compared to, say, an average 500NLz reg, it's probably because you're making much bigger mistakes and will bleed money in the long run to anyone with a pulse anyway.

to be fair it's fine since nobody in your games probably has a pulse...but in that case, what's your point? that you're able to beat other lololds who have a demented and archaic approach to poker where they think things like psychology and "putting a man to the test for all his chips" mean something?

Re: Does Aging Always Destroy Poker Players' Career?

I guess no one has ever put you to a test for all your chips before!

Re: Does Aging Always Destroy Poker Players' Career?

All I know is when I think about guys getting older and playing at the same level I think about Chip Reese. His entire adult life (albeit way too short) he adapted to changes in the poker world and was almost always at the top of the game.

There are only a handful of players that could play well at 25 and at 55. Chip was one of them.
