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.
2700 cant be so stupid
i was beaten twice by a 1200 player recently.His strenght was about 2000 :D
Yes I took a look at the game, a fluke can happen.
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."
Scientifically:......0-9 threads...exponentionally..oops! Am i stuck to your shoe?.Shit i burnt my oxford..OK Z i promise i'll just listen..well? Maybe!
Anything can happen in chess!!!!
Anything can happen in these threads. And often does.
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.
Z..This is not funny...i was gonna comment on the women thread..but since you give the wrestleing bollux i feel oppressed now...It's early morning there now..do you not need pancakes or something!
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!
Thats like saying 2 normal 6th graders together are as smart as a 12th grader
That HAS to a joke.
No, it was the beginning of an insidious plan to merge ten 1300 rated players into one ultimate chess machine.
Great idea. Down right brilliant! There'll be a Nobel Prize in chess given for this.
Come on man, I told you about my insidious plan in confidence! How dare you tell everyone my secret!
It was going to look something like this, but without the eye patch . . .
