    I read somewhere that he is a passionate chess player if that is true nobody can be richer.

    you didn't specify richest chess master.

    First of all, it appears that Bill Gates isn't much of a chess player....

    Just goes to show you that you dont have to be a great chessplayer to be wealthy.

    Very true. Didn't Magnus beat Gates in less than 15 moves recently?

    Come on though, most of us would lose to Magnus in very short order.

    Queen Elizabeth II plays the game.  I think I'd really enjoy playing a game with her.

    Here's more famous folks who play.  http://monroi.com/chess-info/44-in/446-celebrities-play-chess.html

    Not the way Gates did. It was absolutely beginner-level play on his part.

    One ChessBase article (http://en.chessbase.com/post/breaking-news-carlsen-and-kasparov-join-forces/) says "It is estimated that Kasparov earned over 30 million US$ or 23 million Euros during his chess career".
