From ESPN.com:

Poker runs in the O'Dea family's blood. His father made two WSOP main event final tables during his career and now, it's his son's turn. Eoghan (pronounced as "Owen") is about a cool as they come. The 26-year-old Audi convertible-driving pro from Dublin is excited about the opportunity and isn't just looking to make the November Nine, but to win. "When I was really young, it was definitely the bracelet," he said. "But now, it's about the money. It's a dream to win this event." He has five WSOP cashes, a runner-up finish in a World Poker Tour event and all the motivation needed that makes him a very dangerous player at the table.

O'Dea has enjoyed success over the years and will end up with over $1 million in career winnings after the 2011 World Series of Poker.  He currently has won over $732,000.

He has had two solid second place finishes in the past at the WPT Marrakech/WPT Season 8 with a $378,227 win and the Ladbrokes Poker Million VII Final with a $250,000 win.
