Bill Gates loses at chess - level 3
He may be one of the world’s richest men and the founder of a global computer giant, but 71 seconds is all it took for 22-year-old Magnus Carlsen to dispatch of Bill Gates in a televised game of chess.
“The game has started. The game is on.”
“Okay, so uh… Let’s go.”
The young Norwegian, who’s been dubbed the “Justin Bieber of chess” easily won the game against Gates on Scandinavian chat show Skavlan.
Carlsen, whose boyish good looks have earned him lucrative sponsorships, a modeling contract and widespread media coverage, became chess world champion in November last year.
“Oh, that was quick!”
Difficult words: dispatch (beat), dub (to give somebody a name that describes them in some way), lucrative (profitable).
