Gates Plays in Bridge Tournament
Aug. 19, 2001
RENO, Nev. (AP) _ Sure, he can build the world's largest personal fortune, but can he win tricks?
Microsoft founder Bill Gates was in Reno to find out, playing in a bridge tournament at the Sundowner Hotel Casino.
Other players said he was friendly and cordial, and he fit in with the casually dressed crowd.
Microsoft has offices in Reno but Gates said Friday's visit was strictly for playing cards.
So how did he do?
Diana Dragt of Gilroy, Calif., was very diplomatic. ``I think he'll be very good at it someday,'' she said.
