Don't recognize a lot of these players? Well most of them are poker tournament veterans. They've probably played more poker tournaments than many veteran name pros you've heard of. No doubt most of them are younger. When you can just sit down at your computer to play poker tournaments and multi-table online poker tournaments on two or three screens it's easier to get tons of experience in a short amount of time. It's entirely possible these young gulf coasters decide to play poker tournament action 10 to 12 hours a day.

Some people say it's not the same, online poker tournament vs. live, but looking at the results at the WSOP the last few years and all the players being young the argument it doesn't translate is harder to buy these days.
