  Karpova: It's said that Paul Mross gave a Simul in his old club "Eckbauer" in 1966. Two chessplayers wanted to poke fun at him - Chessplayer Bruch had the black pieces while Chessplayer Buerke had the white ones. So Bruch reproduced Mross' moves from his game against Buerke (where Mross had black) and Buerke reproduced Mross' moves from his game against Bruch (where Mross had white). After the simul was over, Mross was impressed by their strong play. When they told him whta they had done, he didn't believe them...
