What principle? He acted in front of a camera like a cheated loser.

How can you expect this guy to be ICC Chief man? He is a sore loser and do not know how to behave himself. Shame on you Kaspy. Behave your self.

I agree this was a disgraceful moment. What's the shame in losing a game in a simul?

His reaction is probably a bit over the top, but basically I think it's understandable. He (like any other player playing a simul) will approach a game against a 1600 player much differently than against a 2200 player. So I can see that he feels "cheated". And after the match everybody will just talk about how he got beaten by a patzer, and nobody will care about the 2200 player helping from the background. For a player as ambitious as Garry, this would surely nag at him. :-)
