How do you plan do do this? The male needs to stay with the eggs for at least a few days until the fry are free swimming. After that the male must be re-conditioned before breeding again.

That won't happen. What will happen is the females will fight for dominance and one or both of them will end up getting badly injured or even killed. A male is not going to blow two bubblenests and keep them both up.

I was thinking that I would pull one fe.ale out in the middle of her spawn and then putting the other in

... Why? What's the rush? Trying to do it could kill the females, could cause the male to ignore or eat the eggs, and it's just going to generally... mess things up, really. It wasn't meant to happen that way, so why try? Two-three weeks isn't that long of a wait, and it could mean the different between life and death for your bettas.

I don't understand the point?

Breeding is about being responsible, not about seeing if you can do something that has "never been done before." If you are going to breed do it for the right reasons. Reasons to breed are:
-to develop a line based on color
-to develop a line based on color and good form
-to experiment at creating a unique color combination
-to continue an existing line based on color or form

If you feel that you need to risk the lives of your fish that is your perogative, but its not going to work. The male is not going to spawn again right away no matter what you do, if anything he will attack the other female and kill her.

If you have the proper set-up this can work, but as other have posted you will risk the lives/health of the breeders especially-if you are new to spawning and if you have the wrong type of set up.
You can risk the female if you pull her during spawn too, so I wouldn't do that
If you are a first time breeder trying to get as many fry as you can for re-sale....you may be disappointed with the results, so much more goes into this than just the breeding/spawning act and if you don't have the right set-up for proper fry rearing and feeding you can loose them as well as the breeders.
Do some more research on multi female spawns to understand the risks.
