It was a quieter round 3, with the minimum number of players (5) present for the melee. Four of those players used the situation to take the melee deck challenge and gain an achievement.
David K won the round with a challenge deck, and yes someone else chose the deck for him! David got all the kills at the table except 1, which Jay N picked up. When you take the melee deck challenge and get any kills, you are credited with an additional kill as a challenge reward. This means David K now has quite a lead at the top of the table. Luckily all you ahve to do is get into the top 8…
