  • Six people stood between Alma and Aaron.
  • Seven people stood between Alston and Albert.

There are eight combinations which fit the eight criteria, but ALROY is in the center (i.e. position 6) for all, so he is the winner.

Aaron is always 4, Alma is 11, Archy is 1, and Aubyn is 7.  Adam and Alec are 8 or 9.  Adrian and Anthony are 3 or 5.  Albert and Alston are 2 or 10.  (1..11 === left to right, 6 in center).
