A great English chess favourite
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
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
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
Publication of the British magazine Kingpin is always an eagerly-awaited event
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
een mixture van absolute totale kolder en serieuze schaakinformatie
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
