Do they have a better mastery of the math/odds associated with the game? Do they have eidetic memories? Does it have to do with their ability to "read" players in a live game and, if so, can that be taught or are some people just inherently gifted in that part of the game? Or is it something as simple as bankrolls and number of times they play?

Yes, they know everything you specify, you can learn it, of course, but it takes a very long time. That's why they are the best live poker players because they can and can read players, that's the most important thing, they all know how to do math and pot odds so in live poker you'll only see the best players

Besides all the usual poker strengths and skill, a live player needs poise when under extreme pressure.

A player must show a very diverse playing style, know how to use his sitting position at the table to make bets. But the most important thing is that he must be serious about playing poker
