for me:
1 - young, a player who is not afraid to risk everything.
2- adult - player who plays more defensively than offensively.
3- elderly, play skillfully, lean before making the move and usually just go for it.

it seems that no one here has any idea of what it's like to be a player of a different age, or they don't know how to play poker or they don't have their own ideas.

I'm sixty eight years old and my parents taught me to play poker when I was ten or eleven, so I have experience with being all of those ages. I prefer the word "senior" rather than "elderly" so I changed it in my reply.

Young = Think that you know everything, but have a lot to learn.
Adult = You have learned a lot, but still don't know everything.
Senior = Finally you have learned everything, but are slowly forgetting it.

Young - Likely to do anything and everything based on their current mood
Adult - More experienced, understands the nuance in the game
Elderly - Careful and cautious, but very skillful

Young people now do not read anything at all, do not want to learn anything and rely mainly on intuition. Sometimes they watch streams. With rare exceptions.
Adult are trying to learn and want to learn more from a variety of sources. They have a lot of experience. But there is not enough time due to the many responsibilities.
Seniors know a lot and have a lot of experience. And we are happy to play any game with any player. They play positively regardless of the results.

I don't think the age of the player matters. I think that the game is more influenced by temperament.

Umm ... 67 y.o. adult sounds a bit ... Awkward. I would use term 'mature'.

Most of the mature older players will put you to the test when they get in with premium cards! Get it all in the middle!
Plus win there share! Young players wonder why they can’t win! Middle age players win a few and cry when they get bad beats over and over and can’t figure out why!
