A revived Korchnoi draws Karpov in 3rd chess game

A tense duel for the world chess title looked less one-sided after Victor Korchnoi, the revitalized challenger, won a draw in his third game against champion Anatoly Karpov. The self-exiled Soviet challenger, who lost the two opening games badly and seemed in danger of being routed, was markedly more confident and aggressive in the close-fought third game. The championship, in which six victories are needed to win, resumes Thursday.
