Poker skills clearly run in the family of World Series of Poker bracelet holder Donnacha O’Dea – the poker ace's son Eoghan took down the iPoker European Championship of Online Poker this week, earning himself $315 000 for an outstanding first place win after surviving an initial field of 1 283 players, who were sponsored or paid the $1 060 buy-in for the event.
Eoghan is a Paddy Poker online player who uses the monicker "Intruder 123" as his online poker identity. Prior to the ECOOP win, the 23-year-old Irishman had racked up some $37 000 in career winnings, cashing at tourneys like the Irish Open, the World Series of Poker  and the Caribbean Poker Classic.
