Loved watching these videos Mike. I moved to NYC in 1978 and went to a tournament at the Biltmore Hotel in Manhatten. I had planned on going to see some matches. Ended up in the practice room sitting less than 10 ft. away from a table and watching Irving Crane run rack after rack after rack. He was still incredible then and that was 11-12 years after this championship
