the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
one of my favorite magazines
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
A great English chess favourite
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
