2012 ACT Championship - Day 3

FM Junta Ikeda is on track to win his second successive ACT Championship after finishing the first weekends play with a perfect 5 from 5. In today's rounds he played seeds 2 and 3, beating IM Andrew Brown in the 4th round, and Sam Grigg in the 5th. Brown and Grigg share second place on 4/5, after Grigg beat Harry Press and Brown beat Willis Lo in their other games. With 4 rounds to play next weekend, Ikeda has already played seeds 2,3 and 4, meaning Grigg and Brown have to rely on the lower seeds to cause an unlikely upset. As a consequence of sharing second place, Grigg and Brown will play in round 6 giving other players a chance to close the gap. Full results from the tournament are available here while the pgn file of games can be found at the ANU Chess Club website, under the games link.
