The idea behind this book is to provide a system for White that is unbeatable. It does not tell you how to win. It just tells you how not to lose and how to keep a draw in hand. You can win if your opponent makes a mistake.

This book goes to other systems, avoiding the Ruy Lopez but relying on lines considered dull, including The Hungarian Defense, The Philidor Defense, the Latvian Gambit, The Queen Pawn's Counter Gambit, the Petroff Defense, the Four Knights Game and the Three Knights Game.

All of these lines are easy to learn and you will not get into much trouble even against the strongest players. The idea is not to try to trap or trick your opponent. Just play steady and good moves, figuring that few games end in a draw, so if you do not play any bad moves you will either draw or win.

Ken Smith was a famous player and teacher of chess, and also a famous poker player. He took me in his car to the 1964 World's Fair in New York and to the 1964 US Open Chess Championship in Boston.

He is often called Kenneth Ray Smith because there are more than 40 notable players of various games and sports and politicians with the name Ken Smith, so a middle name is added to distinguish him from the others.
