You might be better off improving your skills so that you can actually compete at the pro level where victories actually mean something and result in tangible rewards, like, you know, vast sums of money.
I don't think so. Winning and losing keeps them excited about the game. They will never play at the pro level so that is not an issue.
It is only a problem if they lose their temper or cheat or are nasty to others, and that happens sometimes, but not as much in real life as portrayed by anecdotes on this board.
