A tryhard is an excuse people use as to why they lost something, typically a game.

The person who uses the word implies that they weren't trying to win, and are calling the other person a tryhard because they WANT to win.

Amongst friends just wanting to have fun, this is a valid excuse. Though, this is mainly used by people (in games such as Modern Warfare 2) who go around playing against random people and losing.
Person 1: We're gonna beat you this game, noob.
Person 2: I doubt it.

(After the game, person 2's team wins)

Person 2: I thought you were going to win?
Person 1: Shut up. You're just a tryhard.

1. A person who tries hard to impress or tries to be something they are not.

2. What somebody would say to anybody who does a little better than them while playing an online game. The person who calls them a "try hard" probably can't handle getting killed or not getting the first kill of the game so they use this as an insult to feel better.
"Wow look at Nick with his shutter shades, what a try hard!"

imcoollol69: "WOW just because you got the first two kills doesn't make you cool, TRY HARD!"
neoxxy: "Getting two kills doesn't mean shit. Can't handle it then don't play."
