Gates plays dollar poker... (26.48)

Wendy: Gates plays dollar poker. Buffett eats a drive in hamburger every day. There's no amount of money that frees you from being a person, from interacting with others. Those guys know that. You know that. It used to be an investment pitch entailed them begging you to take their money. Now you've got to peddle your wares along with everyone else.

William Henry Gates III (born October 28, 1955) is an American business magnate, investor, author, philanthropist, and humanitarian. He is best known as the principal founder of Microsoft Corporation. During his career at Microsoft, Gates held the positions of chairman, CEO and chief software architect, while also being the largest individual shareholder until May 2014.
