The pro who plays like (a little) like Victor

Gan Siyang (Chinese name 甘思阳) is a professional player who, around 2005, started playing unconventional openings. 6-4, tengen, 6-4, for instance, or opening on 8-8. Naturally, this leads to fascinating and unusual games. After struggling to find some more of his games, someone has posted a collection of about 25 of his games onto The collection (and a picture) can be found here.

Note that these sgf files still contain Chinese characters so it may not be that clear what is going on. Gan Siyang is the one with the strange opening moves!
