The one and only Phil Hellmuth launches his autobiography at the World Series of Poker, and Beth Shak is the target of a hacker and a stalker.
Take a trip to the coldest parts of the Siberian Railway, and you will find someone who has heard of the name Phil Hellmuth. The man is one of the few personalities that transcends poker, and his brand is about to get a boost after releasing his new book during the World Series of Poker.
If you are in the Rio, then head over to the D&B Booth to pick up your copy of The Poker Brat: Phil Hellmuth’s Autobiography. Not only will you learn what it takes to become one of the best No-Limit Hold’em players in the game, but how to grow a personal brand that is still going strong two decades after denying Johnny Chan an unprecedented triple back-to-back WSOP Main Event win.
And there’s more.
While you are busy dissecting the life of the only poker player to have written a New York Times Bestselling poker book you may be fortunate enough to stumble upon a Willy Wonka-like Golden Ticket.
There are 8 Golden Tickets hidden in copies of Hellmuth’s new book, which will land you a $1k seat in his home game, a two-night stay at Aria, Las Vegas, and a bottle of Kimo Sabe Mezcal.
The home game takes place May 19, 2018.
Copies of the new book are also available on Phil Hellmuth’s website and Gambler’s General Store.
Beth Shak Hacked
Fluttering like a butterfly from one poker player who wants as many people as possible learning about his private life to another who is battling to keep a lid on theirs.
Do you remember, Beth Shak?
According to press reports, Shak is being tossed about like a rag doll by a hacker who has stolen topless photographs from the part-time poker player.
The troubles began in April when she learned of attempts to access her bank accounts, her email, and her mobile phone. Shak’s social media accounts were also hit, and just to show the savagery of the hacker they even hacked the Instagram account of her dog.
In addition to the cyber attacks, Shak also reported having to leave New York because a strange man was stalking her. Shak is currently going through a divorce with one-time sweetheart Rick Leventhal, who confirmed that he is neither a hacker nor a stalker.
“I have no interest in following her.” The Fox News host told the press.
Despite her troubles, Shak is still hoping to make it to the World Series of Poker (WSOP).

Shak’s last cash in a live event was at the 2013 WSOP when she finished 126th in a $1k No-Limit Hold’em Turbo event. Her biggest pay day came in 2007 when she finished runner-up to Shankar Pillai in a $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em event at the WSOP.
