Bill Gates loses at chess - level 2
Bill Gates, the founder of a giant computer company and one of the richest men in the world, was beaten in chess just in 71 seconds.
The winner was a young Norwegian. He won the World Chess Championship in November last year, and he has been called the “Justin Bieber of chess”. His boyish good looks have earned him lucrative sponsorships, a modeling contract and widespread media coverage.
Difficult words: lucrative (producing a lot of money), sponsorship (financial support for an activity), coverage (he is often in the media ).
