FM Alphaeus Ang's Remarkable Record

The West Auckland Secondary Interschool Chess Championship held on August 5th was significant for FM Alphaeus Ang. It marks the final NZCF West Auckland Interschool Chess series that Alphaeus will be eligible to play in. Each year for eleven years in succession now Alphaeus had played as board one for his school's A (best) team. Amazingly (could this be a world record?) Alphaeus has picket fenced every year, winning all games in all rounds, in all years. The streak started with Alphaeus a year 3 in St. Paul's Primary School playing the Primary division in 2010 (the photo shows Alphaeus at this age) and concludes unbeaten and unbroken with Alphaeus a year 13 at Liston College in the Secondary division. Alphaeus also played for Liston College in the Intermediate division. Interschools chess in Auckland is known for keen and unforgiving competition, this is not an easy arena in which to excel. Thanks to the Waitakere Chess Club for running the event through it's history.
