If the 2700 is very distracted or impaired, yes. Under normal circumstances, each playing their best game, no.
He could probably be distracted, and impaired, and still win.
A 2700 player would beat a dozen 1300 in a blindfold simul while playing cards...
Remember Morphy ?
Rooperi, here is the game you are referring to.
What about Qd3?
What does Qd3 change? Notice that f3 is guarded by the d4 knight.
followed by qf1
oh okay, sorry
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.
The Universe is huge and old, and its only getting bigger and older. Anything that isn't strictly imposible has probably happened countless times already.Our planet orbits a single star, our star is 1 in a billion in our galaxy. Our galaxy is 1 in a billion in the observable universe. These are a drunken man's rough estimations, but the point remains. If it is possible, it happens. If an omniscient being had commented on the odds of this exact debate occuring in some far flung corner of the Universe countless millenia ago, he would have considered it close to zilch. Look at us now.
Actually, if he was the ancestor of anyone on this forum, he would have said nonelolllzz
Correction, Browne could have saved mate with e6, but black would go into a vastly superior endgame.
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

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