a must-read for everyone who doesn’t take chess too seriously; it’s especially a must-read for everyone who does take chess seriously
In Kingpin, nothing is sacred, and this makes Kingpin such a hit
very, very entertaining
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
the gutter press of chess
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
