After seeing that Alistair Melville was down to just 3,500 chips, the staff consults the players who previously had an objection with playing to the money. Those players rescinded their objection and play continues until Melville is all-in in the big blind.
Dan Colman limps in from middle postion, Christian Harder calls on the button, and Hoyt Corkins completes the small blind. The three players who still have chips in the hand check the Q84 flop and check again when the turn brings the 5.
The river is the 7 and action checks to Harder, who bets 10,000. Corkins folds and Colman folds KK face up, jokingly saying, "Charder, you asshole."
Harder shows 69 for the nuts and Melville turns over J3. Harder's straight takes the pot and eliminates Melville on the money bubble, bringing Day 3 action to a close.
