As a female in the traditionally male dominated sport of poker, Beth Shak has spent her entire professional career breaking down the barriers that female poker players are forced to face.
As a world champion poker player (who was also named world’s sexiest poker player by News of the World), Beth has had to prove that she is more than just a pretty face. She participates in the highest stakes tournaments such as the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour every year, and in her short professional career (she went pro in 2004), Beth has made it two World Series of Poker final tables and earned close to $1 million.
Now, she has earned the respect of all her competitors and has a HUGE fan base.
Beth says, “I’m so proud not only to be a successful poker player, but to be a successful woman in a male-dominated field. Thanks to the loyal support of Full Tilt Poker and my amazing fans, I have been fortunate enough to be the woman who brings this incredible sport into popular culture. It’s truly an honor, and it’s been one hell of a ride. I can’t wait to see what happens next!”
