22-year-old Magnus Carlsen, the world’s top chess player, check-mated his way to more than $1 million in earnings last year. For a mere $2,600 you can have dinner with him plus a two-hour game followed by commentary and analysis.
Dinner and chit-chat concerning financial matters with Warren Buffett, the world’s third richest man ($39 billion), is pricier: fetching $2.63 million recently for charity. That’s approximately a million bucks an hour. Of course at 83, Buffett has sixty more years of experience than the young Norwegian genius. And Omaha, whence Buffett hails, is renowned for its steak, which is included.
