The Westbrook Method is a school of buzzing strategy that advocates wildly guessing your first inkling at the answer. It is the logical extreme of lateral thinking and often leads to 1:2 tossup-neg ratios.

Possibly the ne plus ultra of Westbrook-style play was exemplified by Stephen Nichols of Seton Hall at the 2007 CBI NCT. As shown in the official stats, our intrepid hero managed to completely zero himself over 15 rounds, putting up a tossup/neg line of 21/42.

Notable circuit practitioners of the Westbrook Method include Ryan Westbrook and Nathan Freeburg.
