Finegold is America's latest addition to the ranks of GM. Although this show is restricted to ICC members only, Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis members can listen to this show in full by going to this link: http://bit.ly/8L2lf6
Life certainly begins at 40 for Finegold, who, after years of trying and being ranked as one of the most experienced IMs in the U.S., has now finally become a GM! Ben is also set for for a career move away from his normal habitat of Michigan to the burgeoning American chess mecca at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis, where next month he takes up a new post there as their Grandmaster-in-residence.
He's also no stranger to Chess.FM, with recent stints commentating with WGM Jennifer Shahade during the USCL Final and the U.S. Women's Championship in Saint Louis.
