Each year, Forbes compiles a list of people worth one billion or more. Topping the list this year is once again Bill Gates, estimated to be worth about $50 billion.

Four people who made their fortunes through online poker made this year's billionaires list. Three are owners of Party Gaming, the company that owns Party Poker. The fourth is Bodog CEO and Founder, Calvin Ayre. Ayre's Bodog Entertainment Group is an online casino, sportsbook, and poker room.
