I actually paid good money for No.9
A great English chess favourite
attractive zany humour
one of my favorite magazines
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
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
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
one of the very few chess publications that call a chess spade a chess spade
