Who Is The “Loser”? 

Unfortunately, too many juniors are counseled these days to distract the opponent.

In those cases, ethics and the purity of the game have been lost.

Never fall for opponent’s antics, not even for bad calls. Once you have determined it is gamesmanship, dismiss it as a sore.  It’s really their problem, not yours.

Life goes on, the loss, perhaps seemingly yours, is really their own.
