    Yeah, it does I think. Confidence is good, but I don't think arrogance is a desirable personality trait.

    haha, most people would agree. I think his arrogance is seriously just to get people out of their game. He says all of this stuff before the matches, knowing most of these guys watch it- he even used to do it when we were in H.S. (and he'd say some pretty funny stuff.. lol) Anyone would get irritated if they've got a guy telling the world they are going to beat you. In his mind, people focus their thought on his antics rather than him- who knows if they do or not... I guess we will see when he gets to Beijing because I don't think Satiev is going to get upset by Ben's personality.
