Are you kidding me???
I got this from the UK’s Daily Mail (see link below)
I either need a new goal, or need to learn how to play a killer game of poker.

One pair of Louboutins is a dream for many girls, let alone a staggering 700 pairs.
Beth Shak – whose ‘name is synonymous with shoes’ – has the enviable honour of being one of killer-heel designer Christian Louboutin’s best customers.
And, at last count, the poker champion owns a colossal 1,200 pairs of shoes.
She says the French shoe maestro ‘has an eye for design and he knows what a woman wants’ – and has sunk a fortune into her admiration of some of the world’s top fashion houses.
A professional poker player, Ms Shak started buying designer shoes in 2004, amassing the enormous collection in just seven years.
She treats herself to a pair of red-soled Louboutins each time she plays a poker tournament, but also wears Lanvin flats and ‘goes through Havaianas on a daily basis.’
The proud owner of a specially-designed closet housing the fruits of her obsession – and her career – Ms Shak displays red encrusted Alexander McQueen heels at the centre of her collection.
Even if Ms Shak used a different pair of shoes every day for three years, she would still have ample fresh heels to look forward to wearing
And, with Louboutins averaging $500-900 per pair, Ms Shak is likely to have spent over $420,000 on the French brand alone.

The mother of three has appeared on MTV Cribs and cites Jenifer Lopez as the celebrity she most admires.
It’s likely, though, that even J-Lo would be envious of Ms Shak’s heels, which include a pair of one-off spade-emblazoned Walter Steiger pink pumps, that she wore to the Poker World Series last year.
