Is Ben Finegold as big a jerk as he seems in his videos?

  • #301

    He's actually quite funny but not sure his abusiveness is appropriate for the audience

    I think it's completely appropriate and completely funny.

    Ben Finegold videos are awesome. Especially when he says "RAR", that is the best!

    As an extreme goody two shoes I'll admit it's not how I'd teach kids, but on the other hand I can see why people like his humor. I have a lot of friends who like dark humor and that's kinda rubbed off on me, so even I chuckle and enjoy his lectures. It's just not how I'd teach kids (just because of how impressionable they may be; don't want them sassing off to their parents or something lol), but I respect anyone who likes him. He's a good teacher at heart.

    Sometimes I have trouble understanding Ben's "RAR" jokes on my PC without downloading additional software. Ben, can you make more "ZIP" jokes instead?

    Free is a good price.

    He probably does it for free because it.is a hobby.and is probably.built wealth from playing in tournament s

    Not sure about the jerk part but he is big.

    Dearest Ben, I was the guy that reported on your sandals, corduroys and tattered shirt...

     

    Sorry if that was not your attire, but it was my recollection and reflected your overall presentation. Also, apologies to referring to your wife as a chess groupie - although I am sure your chess skills are part of her attraction to you - and we definitely need more women in chess. 

     

    To me, you do come across as a bit of a bully on your videos - but beauty and bully is in the eye of the beholder I suppose.   To each his own...

     

    To be sure, you were very decent to respond to this thread.
