The compensation approach has recently been introduced for the determination of the stationary distribution of two-dimensional nearest-neighbour random walks without one-step transitions to the North, the North-East and the East. The present study compares this approach for the symmetrical shortest queueing model with the analytical solution. It is shown that the final results are identical.
