Monteo da Westi is the author of The Art of 9x9 and The Way to 9x9 Go, and an 8 dan player on the 9x9 GoQuest server. In middle January 2020, he was the number one ranked player on the same server. His GoQuest name is 9x9Meijin, able to defeat other top players on the server, including spaceman (9D), achan29 (8D), and naotin15 (8D). His art name is Honinbo Sensei, Meijin of 9x9.
He develops a scientific method for assessing the strength of great players in history, called Superhuman Performance Analysis, and is the first to reveal that Cho Hunhyun is a little stronger than Honinbo Shusaku, based on a performance indicator called “Move Strength.” Details are given in his book, “Who is the Strongest Go Players in History?,” which provides the new mindset of Go performance beyond the traditional Elo score and dan ranking systems. The technique allows anyone to compare the performance of any Go players throughout the history in an objective manner and can alter Go history about the greatest player in history.
