Publication of the British magazine Kingpin is always an eagerly-awaited event
irreverent and entertaining
leaves my game shiny, manageable, natural looking
the gutter press of chess
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
very, very entertaining
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
Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
attractive zany humour
