I'm a loser, baby, so why don't you kill me?

I have quite the reputation for losing games very frequently. I don't know if this is justified; I've been winning quite a few recently, and I won three of five last night. Anyway, I have the reputation. I was playing Alhambra with Peter, the person who held this title before I showed up, and a three other people.

Peter: You know, Travis, you've got quite the lock on last place. I don't think you have to worry about anyone taking that away from you.
Travis: Well, what can I say? You've been a great mentor.
Peter: Yes, but it seems that by now the student has surpassed the master.

I did indeed come in dead last that game, tied with someone else. She wasn't happy.

"I tied with Travis! That's worse than losing."

However, in the second game, I utterly destroyed them. My palace was worth so many more points.
