    This is one complaint I have not had leveled at me.

    Oops, didn't notice this was in the NT section...sorry.

    Pretty graceful. I've had a lot of practice throughout my life

    I used to be a REALLY sore loser!
    I don't mind so much if it's a close race
    but I hate it when someone is just plain humiliating me.
    One time, my husband was beating me really bad at Backgammon and I got so upset,
    I flipped the whole board over!
    That ended the game.
    I was probably in my early 30's when I did that.

    That's interesting...with me it's the opposite. If I get completely dominated in a competition, it's easier for me to shrug it off. I tend to think that either there was nothing I could have done, or it just wasn't my day. But close losses get under my skin because I keep rehashing what I might have done differently to turn a close loss into a close win. It'll stay with me.

    Called me a sore loser?
    I guess they've never lived long enough to finish the sentence, but it usually sounds like that's what they were starting to say.

    I should wait 'til they're done talking next time to confirm.

    Before or after I push the chessboard off the table?

    It depends on a number of things. If I think I should have been able to win, I don't take it well because I am frustrated with myself. If the person who won gloats over it, I get irritated. If I feel I am being judged according to how well I do, then losing makes me feel like I've failed. Obviously, I am a sore loser in these cases, though I try to hide it.

    Otherwise, I'm generally OK. I am a graceful winner though because I am aware that my opponent may be feeling any of the things I've mentioned above and I don't want to rub their face in it. Also, I value modesty!
    You what?

    I learned pretty quickly that no one will play with you if you are a sore loser or a boastful winner. Taking defeat gracefully is learned.

    As someone else said on this thread, you don't get better by playing against opponents you can always beat. So if you want to improve you better get used to losing. It just makes it that much sweeter when you finally win.

    I'm not a sore loser. I posted about this before. Game playing is like an experiment for me.

    Especially in games of chance, I don't play to win, I play to create interesting situations.

    This is even more true in arguments. I like to explore what is interesting, or most penetrating, rather than attempt to "win" the argument.

    What I do get sore about is when people complain about how I play the game. (I find loop-holes often)

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
