Would multiple attempts be okay? i.e. Can I keep trying this throughout the month and the best attempt counts? Also, with, or without belt?
Absolutely. Multiple attempts are fine. With belt and wraps if need be.

I have no way of posting a video so I am out. At 191.4 pounds (87kg), I reckon 12-15 reps would be possible though.

Watch as BTB 'miraculously' does 25+ reps! Waiting for Faz to come in and whoop everyone.

Game on. I currently weigh 117kg ish so I'd like to hit at least 20-30 reps. I've done 170 for 9 during the Smolov so this should be more than doable!

Exactly. I'll see if I can get the flip cam we got for christmas last year finally out of the box. I'm currently weighing in at 210, and I think I could do 20+ if I rested for a few days.

I haven't done more than 5 reps (other than the 8 required for one set/week on the 5 x 5) for over 3 months. I did 185# for 20 at that time.

I don't think I have the cardio or leg stanima right now to do 145# for high reps. But, I may work up to it this month.

There is no way I am hitting 20 reps with 300 pounds. But I will try! My conditioning stinks right now.

You are a liar and a knave!
I didn't know you weighed 300, I figured you were in the 260 area.

In theory, a guy who can squat 200kg for 1 rep should manage 20 reps in the 120kg range but lack of conditioning would see them fall well short. I have read in a few places that 20 reps would be 60% of your 1RM. Could be wrong mind.

In theory. 60% gets heavier as you get stronger.

Heck, I can barely do 20 reps with 235 without dying.
