    Are any of you interested in giving simultaneouses? I have a coaching group here with over 1700 members and growing rapidly. I make a living at chess now, and there are far more potential students than I can handle. I give the simuls when I can, and have a few other titled players in my group doing the same. So, this is your chance to get a new audience for your talents, and make some new friends.....These titled player simuls are popular.

     

    Ok, it's all done on your time and interest. If you want in:

    1) join my group http://www.chess.com/groups/home/nm-aww-rats-free-video-lessons

    2) Make a thread in our group forums introducing yourself. (I'll add you to my group coaching list).

    3) When you want to give a simul, just announce it in another thread. (message me too, please, in case I am away for a day or so). Set how many boards, time control, colors, rated (They stole all my points my first attempt, I lost 17 games on time) or unrated, and your time zone. 

    4) I will then make make a "News" post and you can expect plenty of replies and questions in both the news feed and your thread.

    Again, you do these as often or infrequently as you wish. I can say this, they are a lot of fun! If I'm around when you give your simul, I will make a live video and post it to YouTube....

     

    Thanks for your time.

    Unfortunately I don't have control over making the pairings. The way it works is simply by putting the highest rated player in Group #1, second highest in Group #2, third highest in Group #1, and so on. It would be nice if it could take title into account though.

    If any of you would like me to change the tournament time controls, group sizes, etc. let me know. I'd just like to accommodate you all as well as possible. Thanks! Smile
