What is a Chess Simul?
A chess simul is when a chess player, typically a very strong player such as a Grandmaster, plays multiple boards at one time. He can play a whole crowd of players, sometimes up to 50 at a single time.
In a regular simul, no chess clocks are used. The boards are usually arranged in a large circle or square and the exhibitor walks from board to board in a fixed order. Each individual participant is expected to make a move when the exhibitor arrives at his/her board.
