Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 692.00014.]
This paper is concerned with the radius R(n) of the largest circle around the origin completely covered by a simple symmetric random walk in the plane which has taken n steps. A lower estimate for R(n) is given but no useful upper estimate is available.
