Zimmermann – Walther
Black to play after 22 Kxf4
Richard Forster, The Zurich Chess Club, 1809-2009 (McFarland 2011), pp.201-2.
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
Publication of the British magazine Kingpin is always an eagerly-awaited event
one of my favorite magazines
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
leaves my game shiny, manageable, natural looking
Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
It seems to me that you haven’t quite achieved the manic, off-the-wall style of humour that Informator manages so well, but you run them a pretty good second
A great English chess favourite
very, very entertaining
