>26 individuals simultaneously lose

>On some show called Your Next Move, Gary Kasparov played chess against 26 individuals simultaneously. Here are some highlights, with Nigel Short narrating:

Watching others play chess is not always the the most exciting thing to do. It’s better to play. But it is fascinating to see someone so capably play 26 simultaneous games, and then win them all. Of course one could say that is expected from Kasparov. The goal, as one of his opponents, is to hold out as long as possible and then recognize when it is time to concede defeat.
