Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?

    Heyy, so there is actually one game in 10000! Faith in probability restored!

    Well unfortunately (?) it was a simul, so I'm afraid it doesn't count.

    Not to mention it was 2500 vs 1500, or 400 points shy of the proposed scenario.

    My room mate has asked this of me, like is it possible to "luck" into just the right moves to beat a master?

    They would have to be very lucky no?

    I would recommend playing the lottery first...

    It would indeed be possible for somebody rated below 500 to luck into the right moves to beat the world champ, but the odds would be so high against it, you might as well call it impossible.

    2509 is far from 2700. That is an other level, ask any GM about it.

    GM and Super GM....some 2509's might not even be a GM under FIDE rules for achieving the rating

    2700 vs 2500:

    One of the English GMs, I've forgotten which one, is meant to have described played Karpov as follows. You play a good opening, get a good position, make good plans, improve your position, think you might have a shot at winning, and then suddenly it will dawn on you that your position is totally lost, and you have no idea how or why.

    Every 400 rating points represents a QUALITATIVE leap is chess playing ability.

    In the U.S. only 10 pecent of active tournament players ever break 1800.  That's "2 leaps" from a 1000 rating.  And only 1 percent of active tournament players ever break 2200.

    So can 1300 win against 2700?  NOPE.  Except in our dreams.

    It ain't computer science.  Sorry.

    Hey, are we doing a tag team on these two threads?  Like WWF wrestling?

    As Madman George Steel said, "I wrestle scientifically."  Laughing

    A 1300 player could have read and memorized a trap and be lucky enough for a 2700 player to play the line and fall into an opening trap.

    What about two 1300 players - combined they would be the equivalent of a 2600 player - definitely a reasonable match for a 2700

    I like Blake's idea.

    Since the 1300 has no chance in a million of winning lure the 2700 (GM) into a trap!
