Dohhhh!

A hotel that poker pro Dan Shak stays at frequently decided to leave him a little welcome surprise:  Embroidered “his and her” pillows.  Only problem, the “her” was Shak’s ex wife….of two years.

“Only been divorced over 2 years and my hotel surprises me with initialed pillows I’ve been here alone 10 times since then is it tomorrow yet?”

A few minutes later he posted another picture with only one pillow on the bed. We’ll let you guess if it was the pillow of the guy working with charities or the one who was recently featured in multiple outlets for having a large shoe collection.

Shak this week was named the honorary chair for an upcoming charity poker tournament benefitting the James Blake Foundation in New York City.

The charity poker tournament will beheld at Las Chicas Locas in New York shortly after the completion of the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament.
