I've seen a pattern in other gaming communities where the best start getting compensated off-table and immediately nose-dive because they can't plausibly be as dedicated as they once were.

I think the next few years will see the 03-04 generation of poker stars (Lederer, Negreanu, Hellmuth, Hansen, Duke etc) evolving into 'hosts' of a sort for the poker world. Their familliar faces will lend legitimacy in the public mind while younger, hungrier players take their place at the top. With so much of their time once spent at the tables now used for promotional work, the fall is inevitable. The fact that kids are playing out of diapers now should also lend to the present level of top-tier play becoming obselete.

whether or not that is a 'fall' is questionable

I can see how internet play has led to a spurt in the evolution of poker strategy, but until the legalities are cleared up, I wouldn't put money on the long-term health of on-line poker play.

The pattern is not one in which old casino pros are being replaced by up and coming young internet stars. The pattern is that the tournament pros who were hot yesterday are no longer hot today. This is a pattern that will persist because of the tremendous luck that is involved in beating todays enormous tournament fields.

A changing of the guard in the biggest live games would be a pattern worth noting.

My opinion is that this post is retarded.
Pro's obsolete? Does that even make any sense?

Is this an age issue? If it is go play Brunson......icckk that sounds too "mainstream poker" ...go play the guy with the cane at any random casino....he'll usually kick your ass.
