Beth Shak

Beth was born in Portland, Oregon on November 8, 1969. At 41 years old, the extremely beautiful and stylish Beth Shak is considered to be one of the most gorgeous women in the poker community.

She started playing cards only in the year 2002 by using ‘play money’ on the Full Tilt Poker website. She started playing live professionally in 2004 and today she already holds a number of accomplishments, which garnered her a top spot in the Women’s All Time Money Winners.

She placed top ten in the second live tournament she ever joined which was the Ladies event of the World Series of Poker way back in 2005. By 2007, she ranked second, beating more than eight hundred other players in the World Series of Poker No Limit Hold ‘em event. She also finished in the top 30 in the fifth season of the European Poker tour, which had more than 500 participants.

With all these amazing accomplishments, you would be amazed that poker is just a small part of Beth’s life. She has a clothing line that she herself developed. This extended out to lingerie to include exclusive up-market shoes for which she has a passion. She owns 1,200 pairs herself as of the last count.

Fashion is obviously one of the key features in her life. Beth Shak says she dresses up appropriately sexy when she plays poker. A closely fitting top with jeans and high heels are her staple outfit on the felt.

She is also a dedicated mother of three; all the more so when she split up with former husband, Daniel Shak. Her commitment is admirable as she makes it a point to put her children’s needs above playing poker. Aside from that, she is also active in philanthropic engagements and joins numerous poker tournaments for charity. She especially raises money for the palliative care program in The Children’s Hospital in Pennsylvania.

With the help of the media’s spotlight, she became much famous for her episode in ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’ where she tried to date guys and to find her soulmate. She also appeared in highly publicized events at the Playboy Mansion, got involved in a fashion spread for YRB Magazine, and also got featured on MTV Cribs. Recently, she appeared as well in the documentary entitled ‘God Save My Shoes’ which is basically about women’s love for shoes.

With her busy schedule, she can not play poker as much as she wants to, but she has set a goal for herself. Her aim is to get a World Series of Poker Bracelet, no matter how long it may take.
