Meanwhile Kirsan Ilyumzhinov makes a bold move to save FIDE from bankruptcy.
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
Please, do people really believe what they read in Kingpin? I am amazed! It’s like taking a satirical show and mistaking it for the news
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
Publication of the British magazine Kingpin is always an eagerly-awaited event
Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
the gutter press of chess
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
I actually paid good money for No.9
