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

    He still is, Tetsuo. The title is valid for life.

    I know! He's one of my favorites! His tactic book called "Learn Chess Tactics" is brilliant! (it's not a book for beginners at all despite the title).

    Actually, I bought it a couple of weeks after starting chess and my tactics greatly improved.  There are many simple puzzles in there, with just a few complex ones.

    definitely, if the 1300 player never resigns and lasts long enough for the 2700 player to blunder big time and lose the game...it is worth the risk...so stay in the game no matter how hopeless your 1300 situation is

    In other words, is he still alive? I suppose it's also possible that it could have been revoked, no? Sort of like Lance and his 7 theoretically lifetime Tour titles.

    Unless Rogoff passed away in the last few days, yes. He just made news this week for a student finding holes in one of his more important economic papers: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22223190

    im a 1050 in blitz and beat a 2200 in a tournament the other day. of course this is because his connection failed...

    The stipulation was that it be a game where both sides are trying to win and it be an official (USCF/FIDE) rated game.

    Probably someone else already did this, but I'm not gonna read the whole thread. So I used a page which calculates winning chances from ELO numbers. The result is

    0.000316127797629618

    This is a more optimistic result than the previously calculated 0.000125

    a multitude of chess.com players are already playing in the lottery because they never resign no matter what the situation

    2700 is really super-high. Very very hard for them to make errors unless put under the sort of pressure sub-2500 players simply won't be able to exert on them.

    I think the best chance would be if the 1300 player happens to have prepared an opening trap with an engine and the GM falls into it in a simul/blitz or something.

    I can't see any chance this is happening if the 1300 has to think for himself (not that super-GM's tend to fall into opening traps for that matter eitherbut an engine might be able to find a nasty one).

    And it better be the sort of trap that mates or at least nets the 1300 the Queen for no compensation.

    I wouldn't expect a 2700 level player to have this kind of hole in his opening repertoire ! Smile

    every 1300 player with Carlsen's strength can beat a 2700.

    If that player had Carlsen's strength wouldn't he be higher than a 1300? Lumpy
