irreverent and entertaining
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
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 the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
those who are unfamiliar with Kingpin are missing out on a real delight: there are many good chess magazines around, but in my opinion Kingpin is the best out there
the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
one of my favorite magazines
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
