WSOP 2020: Eoghan O’Dea Wins Maiden Bracelet in Event #51

by Nitya Jain Posted on 06 Aug, 2020

The poker fraternity is well-aware about bracelet winners Doyle and Todd Brunson, the father-son duo. On Wednesday, another one who joined the list to continue the family legacy was Ireland’s Eoghan O’Dea who claimed the 51st Event of the 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online on GGPoker for a massive 6-digit score!

It took more than 10 hours for O’Dea to race past a field of 2,005 entries to be crowned as the champion of the 2020 WSOP #51: $400 Pot Limit Omaha. Eventually taking home the largest share from $753,880 prize pool. In 1998, Eoghan’s father Donnacha won his only WSOP bracelet after defeating poker legend Johnny Chan in heads-up to win WSOP $1,500 PLO Event.

After the bubble bust, money reached the top 278 finishers who earned $875 as min-cash and several Indians including ‘AifeKaife’ (51st, $1,748), ‘Umeshbhai’ (114th, $1,225), ‘Haversham’ (123rd, $1,095), ‘d0rk21’ (171st, $979), ‘skhellfreeze’ (172nd, $979), ‘khatteT4tte’ (274th, $875) also bowed out with a share.

The 9-handed final table also saw Spanish race car professional driver Daniel ‘BoooooBie’ Juncadella, Lorenzo ‘EhUsGuri’ Bazei, and the two South Africans Jarred ‘Solosalt’ Solomon and Robert ‘Bobzothejock’ Le Roux. The first casualty form the FT was Juncadella who captured $8,688. Along the way, Bazei, Ruslan ‘zverrmvp’ Nazarenko, Hong Kong’s Chi Chung ‘chipuker’ Ho, Norway’s Benjamin ‘Wapbap’ Voreland went out securing their payouts.

Soon O’Dea dismissed Robert ‘Bobzothejock’ Le Roux in the 3rd position after hitting a set of Queens on the river. Heads-up battle began between Eoghan ‘DrRoche’ O’Dea (30 million chips) and Canada’s Nital ‘4TheAnimals’ Jethalal (19 million chips). On the final hand, O’Dea raised from the button to 1.2 million and Jethalal called from the small blind.  The {a-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop saw Jethalal check before O’Dea called. Eventually, Jethalal went all in.

Nital “4TheAnimals” Jethalal: {6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Eoghan “DrRoche” O’Dea: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

Jethalal had bottom two pair and straight draw while O’Dea held top set. The turn Kc and the 9s river completed the board and the O’Dea was crowned the champion, taking home $100,945 in prize money! The champion sits 3rd in Ireland’s all time money list with a whopping $3.21 million in lifetime winnings. He is known to have reached the FT of the $10K Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship in 2017 and 2019, finishing in 6th place both times.
