Not at all.In 1970 and 1980, there were about 15 non slam big events, not to mention the WCT FInals which no longer existed after 1989.No possible comparison.

However, in order to even things, IŽd pick the Dallas finals as part of a super evnts that included:

WCT Finals
Johannesburg ( till 1975) and Las Vegas ( from 1985)
Palm Springs/La Quinta
Tokyo Super seiko

and , of course, Dallas

Now you have the 4 GS, the Masters ( currently called WTF) and your Super 9
