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

I would say the original poster is the one with a poor sense of humor, can't even tell when a joke is a joke, how stupid can you be.

How come this thread gets on top of Google lists?

I actually like Ben's videos; they are funny, informative,interactive and appropriate. Yasser's videos are also excellent and interactive but that ain't makin' Ben's videos bad. Yes, he teases but don't we all? And I do think it's extremely rude of you to say that he is a jerk. Everyone is allowed to have opinions, even that people are jerks, but do not voice these opinions unless they affect your everyday life which I'm sure Ben doesn't affect your life but please do not use words like jerk. Ben is funny in his own way. He ain't no jerk; he cool. His videos cool. I do agree with your statement that Yasser's videos are so, so, so, so, so cool but so are Ben's. Some people think Yasser's are cooler, and some Ben's. I personally enjoy both equally.

Thank you for voicing your opinion though.

Every time I get an email saying that there is a new comment on my account, I get so pissed when I find out that it's on this stupid thread.

I got to meet Yasser once when the chess hall of fame was in Miami. He was very friendly and even offered to play a game against me but I did not want to embarrass myself so I told him thanks but I was not very good at chess.

He went so over the line once. It must not have gotten out because it would be unforgivable to a couple. 

He's been a good sport to me a few times in St. Louis. Here's watercolor Ben.

The "Poop" emojis in the painting behind Ben are, to quote the man, "very suspicious."

I just noticed that Ben Finegold in this picture does not have a beard.

Which means one of two things:

1)  Either I am in the alternate 'evil' timeline ... 

2)  Or bearded "evil" Ben is in our timeline ...

I think he's extremely funny - yes, I could see being put off by some of his comments ("why don't you make more noise?")...but overall he anlayzes each position well and the humor helps.

He is super funny but his great jokes are kind of wasted on those kids because they never get them, neither do they help to keep them more concentrated .                                                                                  Varuzhan Akobians handles the kids classes a bit better, he never lets the class attention drop.

Ben is just a harmless fuzz ball.

The humour is exhilarating.

Interestingly, some players play better the noisier the conditions.

Lots of contradictions here.
