Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Should I close a question that is the master of already closed duplicates in favor of a more recent question that has better answers?

Until now I generally closed questions as duplicates only in favor of older questions. But now I notice that some of those questions have better answers than the master question.

So should I revert my decision and make the one with the poorer but older answers the duplicate of the one with the better but more recent answers?

Any reason you're not merging them instead?
