Meet the November Nine: Eoghan O'Dea

Irish Pro Will Return in Second Chip Position


Eoghan O’DeaEoghan O’Dea will enter the final table as one of the favorites thanks to his tournament experience, his second-place chip stack and his father’s legacy as one of Ireland’s best players.

Eoghan’s father Donnacha O’Dea previously made the WSOP Main Event final table twice, finishing ninth in 1991 and sixth in 1983. They are now the only father and son duo to both make the final table.

The 26-year-old has $739,634 in tournament earnings, but is already guaranteed to double that amount come November. However that won’t be the goal on his mind. The $8.7 million first-place prize and the piece of poker history could be in waiting for the Irishman.
