Fujii Souta got 11 straight victories

Fujii Souta broke a new record with his 11th victory in a row since he became a professional. His first game was against Kato Hifumi, the oldest shogi player, and since then he has won another 7 games plus 3 games for the NHK tournament. His previous record became the youngest professional player.

Other genius players who become pro players when they were a teenager like Yoshiharu Habu or Watanabe Akira got 6 victories in a row when at the time they became a pro.

The previous record was set by Kondou and Matsumoto with 10 straight victories.

They were his rivals.
○Katou Hifumi (9 dan)

○Toyokawa (7 dan)

○Urano (8 dan)

○Arimura (7 dan)

○Urano (8 dan)

○Kitahama (8 dan)

○Takeuchi (4 dan)

○Oohashi (4 dan)

○Shoshi (7 dan)

○Oohashi (4 dan)

○Kobayashi (7 dan)

Since he has become a professional he only lost the unofficial game of the 7 game match against Nagase but has won the other games against Masuda, Saito and Nakamura.

It looks that is just matter of time that Fujii will get his first title.
