After 3 rounds at the ACCC, the Victor Korchnoi of Southern Chess, Klaus Pohl has a half point lead after winning all his games. He continues to amaze. The Stud and Longshot Larry are a half point behind, as Damir beat Hartley Chiang, while Longshot came down and actually wrote down the result as a loss for himself, telling the House that he would withdraw after his opponent, Chris Wiley, played the winning move. When Mr Wiley did not make the killer move, a Longshot came in, as Larry went on to win the game!
