Sarkiss Osalian is currently leading the way of the $25,300 One Drop Mega Satellite and is doing so on the cheap. At Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia where the World Series of Poker will be headed in April 2013, a free-to-enter satellite was held with optional $10 rebuys on Day 1. On Day 2, anyone could enter for $550. The event attracted 550 players and Osalian won.
The prize Osalian received for winning was a $40,000 package to the 2012 WSOP that included a seat into this $25,300 satellite and also the $10,000 Main Event. What a story it would be if he's able to ride this out to a seat on the Big One for One Drop, but only time will tell.
