The point of departure of the present article is Anscombe's seminal 1952 paper on limit theorems for randomly indexed processes. We discuss the importance of this result and mention some of its impact, mainly on stopped random walks. The main aim of the article is to illustrate the beauty and efficiency of what will be called the stopped random walk (SRW) method.
