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.
