    Join here and another site. (ICC) start 6 games.

    Take Black in all your game here - White in all your games at ICC.

    Then when the players here make their white moves.

    You make the same White moves on ICC. You get their reply
    and make that move here.

    So infact 6 players from here are playing 6 players from ICC.

    It came up in another forum I was browising and I'm sure I have
    seen the suggestion here before.

    I recall someone mentioning the possibilty of one of the players
    using a box and you get banned. I'm sure it was on here.

    sooo... instead of having to suffer through my one crap game, I'd be doing loads of dull repetitive work to follow 12 crap games, and I wouldn't even get to play myself?

    Derren Brown off the television used this method live to beat a load of grandmasters.

    I know it's an old trick but I do recall seeing a thread on here about it.

    The point is you need not know the rules of the game to do this.
    Just copy one move to another site.

    You could have a scenario where one guy is a member of both sites
    and ends up playing himself. Do you think he would notice if he
    was one of those with 50-100 games on the go on both sites?

    There is also the possibility of a guy using a box on ICC and you
    get banned here!

    Surely that would be considered third party assistance?

    yeah it'd be cheating on both sites simultaneously and probably sucking at both

    yeah, was, too, gonna mention Derren Brown, but you beat me to it... but he didn't reveal how he actually won/drew one of the games, did he? the one that wasn't "paired" up...if I remember it correctly now

    He said that the 9th player was a lot weaker and therefore he could just beat him himself.
