Event 6A: Blumenfield Among Notables in Level 3

$350 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 3: 100/200
Entries: 18

The Cock poker Showdown $350 is off to a modest start with 18 entries at the beginning of Level 3. Doing their part to grow field are a handful of notables — Neil Blumenfield, Nachman Berlin and Miguel Martinez are among those in their seats competing for a share of $35,000 guaranteed.

Neil Blumenfield

Blumenfield is a notable face in any event he plays. A recent Florida transplant, Blumenfield burst into the poker spotlight in a big way during the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. He graced the final table as part of the November Nine and went on to finish third for nearly $3,400,000. In the months since, he’s become a regular on the South Florida circuit and recorded numerous cashes including a 29th-place finish and $25,000 score in last August’s $5,000,000 guaranteed Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship.

Blumenfield has chipped up slightly during the first couple levels of Event 6 and sits above 20,000 chips.
