In 2012, Neil Blumenfield made a deep run in the WSOP Main Event, finishing 285th for $38,453, his largest score to date. Little did he know he'd return three years later and not only make a deeper run, but make it all the way to the November Nine.

Before that he served as Vice President of Professional Services for Above All Software, Inc., spent seven years at Informix Software, four years at Visigenic Software, and served as Vice President, Professional Services at Andromedia, which was acquired by Macromedia.

In the poker realm, Blumenfield has amassed $130,468 in live tournament earnings including $37,749 for a fifth-place finish in the 2014 Heartland Poker Tour Lincoln Main Event; $15,930 for winning the 1st Annual State of Nevada Poker $1,000 Championship in Reno back in 2008; and $2,452 for finishing 268th in this year's WSOP Event #40: $1,000 Seniors Championship.
