Unlike most players with 21 years of age who enter so enter his 1st WSOP super ego, Kovlachuk spent his time in his first final table while remaining extremely quiet. Well educated and even a little humble, Kovalchuk was quick to point out how difficult the competition was in the "$ 2,500 Six-Handed No Limit Hold'em" final table and even quicker to admit he was lucky to get into the circle of winners.
