During the middle of the week I ended up running in to a high school friend of mine on campus. We were really close in high school and freshman year, but we started to drift apart after that. He ended up joining a frat and that never really interested me so I went the other route. Anyways, we made plans to hang out last night and it was a lot of fun. I brought my g/f and roomate with me and he had a few of his frat "brothers" over. We just got shitty and played some drinking games over his place. One of the best memories I have was right before all the graduation and prom stuff that happens before senior year. To raise funds for the limo and tux that we had to cover, my friends Cory, Sean, and myself decided to throw a keg party and charge $5 a cup. The coolest part of this was Sean (this is the guy I hung out wih last night) had just bought some turn tables and a mixer. I ended up going to Rent-a-Center and renting this massive concert speaker set up which was rediculous for just a house party. We set the whole thing up in my basement and we had well over 100 people show up. We did the same thing the weeknd after because I had the speakers for a month. This made us at least $650 in profits just for hanging out and having a good time. It was like something out of a movie, you never see high school house parties set up wih a bar, DJ, strobe lights and everything else.
Anyways, I didn't play as much poker as I anticipated last night. I got in about 1200 hands. Despite being down about 2 buy ins to start the session off, I managed to book a small win on the day. I was really happy with the way I controlled my frustration. I let it roll right off me and just kept playing my game. I think part of it is the low stakes, I'm used to playing 50 and 100NL and this point so $25 is like toilet paper.to me. The other part is that I have extremly good tilt control now. When I first started playing every loss would bother me to the point that I was making horrible adjustments and spewing money. The turning point happened when I flopped quad Q's and got it all in and eventually lost to a running royal flush. After that beat, I realized that I could play poker for the rest of my life and never see anything as bad as that ever.
