Jussi NevanlinnaLast year Finnish pro Jussi Nevanlinna took it down after beating a 291-strong field and Greek phenom Georgios Zisimopoulos heads-up. The €300,000 prize was the best live cash of Nevanlinna’s career and he is currently ranked eighth in his country’s all time money list with close to $2 million in live tournament winnings. His second biggest score also came in the Dutch capital when he was runner-up there in 2011 to local hero David Boyaciyan.
