Japan’s youngest professional shogi player, 14-year-old Sota Fujii, won his 27th consecutive match Saturday, extending the second-longest winning streak in the traditional Japanese board game.

Fujii, a fourth dan who has been unbeaten since December, is now one match shy of the record of 28 consecutive victories achieved by eighth dan Hiroshi Kamiya, 56, in 1987.
