Keeping cool in the face of rudeness
Been trying my hand in a few cheapass tournaments over the last couple of days in order to try and sharpen myself up.
In one of them, some guy seemed to take a dislike to me or my play and started calling me things in the chatbox: fish, n00b, loser, bag of nails (?? -- can't find a reference for this one).
This rattled me and I think I misplayed a couple of hands as a consequence. (Still finished in the money though! First time...)
What techniques do people have for letting idiots like this wash off their backs like Sam Goldwyn's proverbial duck, and not letting it get to them?
