I thought that the list of forbes had 100 entries. What happened there. More people wanted to see their name on that list and they put more?

Yes I think too if biek has more than 10 billions in his account fo lose eveb 100 millions of dollars is only 1% of his bank, so yes this money is very big in poker, but he makes his money in banks and investing and i this world there is different money.

This billionaire has not lost so much of poker as says in this material. In 2004 Andrew Beal win a big pot 11,7 millions dollars and it was not the only time when he won. For these people this amount of money is not that big. They can lose much but this rich people produce big money.

I have seen Andrew Beal playing high-stakes poker on YouTube. I didn't know he was the founder and chairman of Beal Bank. $10.4 billion in assets? Wow! That is an insane amount of money. Does he have his own island? Does he even have a time machine?

Are business people who risk a lot in life and many of them manage to accumulate colossal sums. For them the competition weighs a lot and for that they do a lot of things to stay in the top. When you have a lot of money you can relax playing a few million dollars. It's a fad for them.
