Stanley Style Go
In the words of the original page,
Stanley Style Go is a unique playing style developed by the KGS identity 'Stanley': (header) greedy Go (ChrisSchack) (that) cannot be adequately described in words. (Fwiffo) Everything seems to be a contact, then a pushing battle. (Alex Baxter)
Objection has been raised to the use of the term "style", which nevertheless is of long standing.
For conversation about the page's revival, see the discussion page.
There were once at least five articles concerning the "Stanley style":
In no case was the page history of any of these articles preserved.
The Stanley KGS account had its first game in January 2002, and the original Stanley ceased to play on it in September 2008.
It was later used by a 2d with a "normal" style from May 2009 to May 2015.
After a six year period of inactivity, the name returned to use, titling a 7k for the spring of 2021.
bugcat: It would be interesting to evaluate some Stanley style positions with AI and see how much disadvantage the bot opines was incurred -- most notably by his usual four move structure played as Black.
Calvin: ... it's probably better than giving a two-stone handicap.
Paul Clarke: ... he is behind by the komi (or a little more) ... say 6-10 points altogether.
PatrickB: The 6-10 point evaluation is probably not far off.
kmr: AI evaluation of this fuseki is 80% WR for white (chinese rules, 7,5 komi) - means that this moves lose about 20%. Also worst move is not this extension, but move 3-4, assuming its 3rd move.
