What's Next

I have planned my schedule now through the WSOP and have made some interesting choices. After FTOP’s and Commerce I am thinking about the WPT in Indiana, at least I think it’s in Indiana. I haven’t spent any time in Indiana, only having been there for refueling stops when flying cross-country. April I am going to Europe for San Remo and Monte Carlo, then back for the WSOP. My wife will join me for most of the Europe trip, which will be great, not only for her company, but she has lived in Italy and speaks Italian as well as several other languages fluently.

I am looking forward to heading to California and spending some time at LaserAway, which I helped found several years ago. I have stepped away from a management role for some time now, but still serve in an advisory capacity. I am often asked about what it is exactly and will elaborate here and now. With multiple locations in Los Angeles, San Diego and Carlsbad LaserAway provides minimally invasive cosmetic procedures on a scheduled and walk in basis. Services like Laser tattoo and hair removal, skin rejuvenation, Thermage, Botox and injectable fillers. For more information you can visit our website .

I am considering spending a little more time working at LaserAway mostly because I miss the work. Now that I’m traveling a little less and playing online a little more, I have more freedom in my schedule. I would like to get back to doing some medical work. We are also considering adding anti-aging medical services and products to our menu. It seems that the these days more and more people ask about things like what can be done to slow the aging process and feel and look as good as we can for whatever our age happens to be.

While playing poker it is especially easy to get on a poor health path. Staying up all night and for days at a time, little or no exercise, and poor nutrition combine to provide a severe obstacle. I experienced this myself, until I began exercising and eating better starting in this past May. The health dividends are great and I think it helps my poker game as well.

didn't this dude relocate to New York? he needs to stay there. Reason why he come back to his "medical" work is because the laser business is going down the tubes!! and so is the dude's poker,so he's scrambling back to save it, rather than returning to the "medical" work. He knows you can only milk so much out of the Borgata when it was an anomoly.

--what a pathetic plug

You two have a lot of anger issues. Pretty pathetic really. Roy is one of the good guys in poker.

What's with all the hate?

A lot of people troll these blogs to spew hate. It's the curse of Internet anonymity. People basically try to be funny by being horrible people and/or latching onto an Internet meme (in this case, the meme was started by Daniel Negreanu saying that Roy likes sexing up the Borgata).

The truth is, Roy is an above-average player and works hard to represent the poker community. Yeah, screw him, right? Get a life, people.

hey richenough.....better watch your step. We know who you are. One more thing, any one of these people are financially capable of securing some serious hurt on you.....oh yeah, and one more thing, Roy W. is so many levels above you that you can only dream of attaining a fraction of what he is. I just wonder what happened to you that caused you to become so dimented.
