I'm a rude asshole!
    #4574647 - 08/24/05 01:51 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

So said an online backgammon opponent that I just dismantled. Here is the deal: we never played before, I wrote no comments during the match until it was over when I thanked him for playing (which I do - win or lose!). This is called sportsmanship.

What happened was that he refused to accept either

A: We are playing a game with a strong random element (dice).

B. He made several mistakes and was punished for them.

His anger at the dice and at himself was projected all onto me and came out as a blasting attack as his ego was damaged.

Good thing this type of projection never occurs here at S&P where we are all mature adults.

Dunno and don't care as I don't play for "fun" only $$$.

Here is the reason: people playing for zero stakes are sloppy and make little attempt to perfect their game.

I know, but we still accept you and know that you will grow out of it. The rest of us all went through that immature faze. Just try to love yourself as you are now and maybe... with some good therapy, well, who knows.

You just love it when people lose it after you "dismantle" them. I don't blame you, competition is all about the gloating winners and the crybaby losers. No real mystery to pick which one most people would choose for themselves. Unless you really do mind being called a rude gloating winner asshole. Just seems kind of laughable labels from someone you just whupped up on.

Still, people have to vent and at least he was hard pressed smashing his keyboard over your head through the online connection. That's the danger of poker in real life, they can always kill you in the parking lot or beat you up for reals.

Readers here may be surprised that I never gloat over a win unless someone taunts me first - then anything goes.

Played live poker last week and took a fair amount of money off the table, yet several people said they hoped to see me again and most everyone wished me a pleasant good night when I left. I was the comic relief and even the losers had a good time.

Why didn't you let him win? How could you damage his ego like that? Shame on you.

I don't know about "rude asshole," but you sure do make a lot of threads about yourself. Perhaps "self-absorbed" would be a proper description?
