Senior Carter Peatman is the 2015 Georgia State High School chess champion.

Peatman will travel to Phoenix this summer represent the state in a tournament against other state champions.

Peatman has played chess frequently since his elementary school years. He was particularly known around the Atlanta Chess Center for his interest in bughouse, a type of chess played with two chessboards.

It’s no wonder he is so good at the game!
