He has no other choice but to play the 2 games at once because he plans on using his opponent's moves in the other game.
Board 1 will be where he will go first and in board 2 he will let his opponent go first. The chess master's move in board 1 will be copied to board 2 and the masters move in board 2 will be copied in board 1.
