Bridge skills failed to help the chances of billionaire investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett in a charity poker tournament to benefit the Nebraska chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Losing all his chips after only 45 minutes of the 50-person competition, the 76-year-old lamented, “It’s different than bridge. I was confused. I thought the low score won.”

Buffett is best known in philanthropic circles for his $37bn contribution to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation earlier in 2006. However, he regularly demonstrates a personal commitment to smaller-scale charity, this year auctioning off his car and a lunch with himself for good causes.
