O'Dea wins first WSOP bracelet

After more than ten and a half hours, the next first-time winner has been crowned in the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events and it was Eoghan "DrRoche" O'Dea who triumphed in Event #51: $400 Pot Limit Omaha. The event created a field of 2,005 entries and prize pool of $753,880, of which O'Dea earned the biggest slice worth $100,945 after defeating Nital "4TheAnimals" Jethalal in heads-up.

While O'Dea is perhaps known to many as a finalist of the 2011 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas, he has a lot of cashes in PLO tournaments to his name. Most notably, he reached the final table of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship in 2017 and 2019, finishing in 6th place both times.

O'Dea becomes the fifth Irish player to win the coveted WSOP gold bracelet and further grows the family legacy in a rare feat on the international poker circuit. His father Donnacha O'Dea, one of the most-well known Irish poker legends, left big footsteps to follow in as he was the first Irishman to earn this merit back in 1998. Perhaps, it comes as no surprise that the "The Don" also claimed his victory in the great game of PLO and Eoghan can now claim one of his own.
