Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
leaves my game shiny, manageable, natural looking
one of the very few chess publications that call a chess spade a chess spade
Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
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
irreverent and entertaining
