Listen, ladies. Are you tired of swapping left on dating apps and have some cash to spare? Beth Shak may have just the thing for you.

The former wife of hedge fund manager and fellow poker player Dan Shak is offering her card skills to teach women “a way to find their ideal man at the felt,” Cards Chat News reported.

Beth Shak offers $1,000-an-hour poker lessons to women looking for Mr. RightAccording to the news outlet, which quoted a New York Daily News article, the former Mrs. Shak is selling a luxury poker set containing gold-embossed cards in a custom-designed wood box with chip logo. The poker set is priced at $129, but pre-orders can get it for $89 and if you’re one of the first 100 to order, you’ll also get an autographed photo of Shak.

Aside from the chip set, Shak is also offering private poker lessons at $1,000 an hour, which she claimed “will show women how to win in more ways than one.”

Shak entered the poker scene in early 2000 alongside her then-husband Dan, and despite having a limited poker skill set—at the time—Shak managed to find her way into several high-profile tournaments, earning more than $480,000 in live tournaments between 2008 and 2013.

Shak is also known for her staggering shoe collection. In 2011, the poker player told Footwear News she owns 1,200 pairs of shoes, worth an estimated $500,000.

Unfortunately, her divorce from Dan Shak and a bleak run at the felt has left the shoe-loving poker pro on the rails in the past few years.

The luxury chip set and poker lessons aren’t the things for sale in Beth Shak’s inventory. A quick scan of the poker player-turned-entrepreneur’s website showed that she is also offering a medical gown that has a full patent, a variety of T-shirts, jackets and tank tops with poker imagery on them, and a selection of her favorite recipes, which range from salad to crab cakes, popover and even her “Mom’s Cheesecake.”

Well, if Shak’s poker lessons fail to persuade her would-be students to ante-up, she can always throw in her cooking lessons to sweeten the deal.
