Only in New York: Hedgie sues poker pro ex-wife over her 1,200-pair designer shoe collection

What a heel. A wealthy hedge-fund boss is suing his poker-pro ex-wife for a reason that would be like a stiletto to the heart of any pump-crazy New York gal — her shoe collection.

Daniel Shak claims Beth Shak never told him about her stockpile of 1,200 pairs of designer shoes when they divorced three years ago.  The finance titan, who had shared a Fifth Avenue pad with Beth, claims that she hid the collection from him — possibly in a “secret room” — and that its value may entitle him to hundreds of thousands of dollars more in their divorce settlement.

In addition to her fame as a World Series of Poker player, Beth is known as one of the world’s top footwear aficionados. Her collection has been featured in media outlets from The Post to MTV’s Cribs.  Yesterday, she told The Post Daniel would have to have been the most clueless hubby ever to be unaware of her hobby.  “I’m shaking my head over this whole thing,” Beth said. “He is saying he didn’t know the closet in our master bedroom existed.”

Daniel claims he found out about her shoes only last year...
