    I was thinking just now, most of the players on here would probably be quite proficient at giving a simultanious display in real life what with the way we jump from one position to another at quite a quick pace most of the time.

    Has anybody ever put this into practise?

    I tried awhile back at club one day with three opponents. Unfortunately two opponents were barely (100-150 points) weaker than me and I lost badly to both of them. The other person was significantly weaker (400+ points) than me and I beat them with ease. My biggest problem was that I felt rushed.

    I guess the fact we have effectively infinate thinking time for each move on here makes it a bit easier.

    I've given numerous simultans to 3-5 players rated under 1600. I guess my scoring percentage was about 66% or so...

    I once played four guys rated at a similar BCF to me and won 3 out of 4

    A friend of mine just gave a simul about a week ago. He is rated 2000, and was playing a bunch of people rated probably around 700 or so. Each of them was allowed to have one partner with which to collaborate. He played two others, me (about 1650) and another, who was 1100- neither of us were allowed to have partners. This was on about 7 boards or so. He lost the game to me but won the rest.

    I once played a seven board simul, but that's not really saying much because most of my opponents were novices. I just agreed quick draws against the only two who were any good and hammered the rest.
