As if an older player hasn't multitabled. Is this some secret thing for young folks only? Or are you generalizing? Then you said this...
4. Experience is all that matters.
So which is it? Experience plus "younger players?" Or just experience. You don't have to be young to have experience. In fact, logic would say the opposite.

BS... Experience and common sense are all that matters. Have I been in a given situation, or not.
Not a thing to do with age... experience.
Now, I give you this. An experienced older player well versed in multitabling, who has also learned the art of live tells as well. Using your logic, age would be the most valuable here. Live tells take years of not
multitabling, and not
using a HUD. Add this to dedicated web play and study puts this person at an advantage live. Whilst the young phenom has no edge on the older experienced
player on line.
The only way to make your logic work is to assume that the older player has no experience with multitabling and poker math. But if this person does, then proper logic dictates that he/she has an advantage over a young person.
So... in essence it comes down to experience. Yet, given the same circumstances, age has a definite advantage..
And BTW. Stu Unger started all this...
