Thanks for posting this video. It brings back some very nice memories.

I actually practiced with Karaksevic when I was about 13 years old. At the end of the practice we played a game, and he beat me 21-4. It was special to have had the opportunity to practice with one of the top players in the world at such a young age.

Sadly, I met Alser in 1975, about 1 1/2 years before he passed away in a private plane crash. I have nice memories of watching the great Swedish trio of Bengtsson, Johansson, and Alser in the early 1970s.

Thank you for sharing the video.
It was rare to see an European penholder.
And yes, the Swedish trio in the early 1970's was always a joy to watch, each one got an unique playing style.
