LNO was stronger at the moment that the game halted. A possible argument against him was that he basically left, while the game was not over yet. The game had a long pause, though, and if I understood correctly, acro was also a bit pressed for time. One might say, in acro's favour, that you can always leave (with a good reason) when you have some advantage, and the game will be decided in your favour.
But then I consider that there was a previous game, which was strongly in LNO's advantage, because he had a better start, where he offered a re-match at a time when it was not strictly necessary. If he had not offered a re-match, time pressure would never have become an issue.
