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

    Aryan Chopra has a FIDE rating of 2051, which isn't close to what you have mentioned. Oh, and he is actually eleven years old, not 9... He is #13 at his age in the FIDE rating lists (which is still good enough).

    Thanks for the corrections, Firebrand. I was too hammered to bother checking, but my point was; somewhere in the universe, a 1200 rated alien is probably rinsing a 2700 at space chess ;)

    I cant find the game now, but there was a famous loss by a gm (Walther Browne?) aganst a 1500 or so amateur. It had something to do with a prepared opening trap, and I think it was a simul.

    Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Crips. My brain's going to hell.

    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 ?

    What does Qd3 change? Notice that f3 is guarded by the d4 knight.

    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 noneTongue outlolllzz

    Correction, Browne could have saved mate with e6, but black would go into a vastly superior endgame.
