Actually, I think solving a rubik's cube might be easier, if you think about it.

there's a competition called speedcubing, how fast can you solve a rubik's cube.

however, there's no competition about how fast can you beat a GM

Rubik's cube can be solved from any position by following a simple algorithm. Once you know the algorithm, it's merely a matter of applying it.

The same is not true of beating a chess master.

algorithms there are more than one

Okay, give me one good reason why one-handed solving should be harder than two-handed solving.
