If the 2700 dies or has to forfeit the game, yes, the 1300 has a chance to win.
Just remember that a 1300 isn't going to last long enough for the 2700 to blunder; and the blunder better be quick checkmate one, or the 2700 will likely still win.
If you know the opening a 2700 player is not to be feared. You can rely on your skills to outplay him. The problem is to learn the openings.
Perhaps, the vast knowledge of winning/losing endgames also could give a smidgeon of an edge to 2700 over 1300, just perhaps.
Actually, as we see from the recent super tournaments most grandmasters still have poor knowledge of endgames. They don't know elementary drawing positions and basic principles and rely on pure calculation. That's why they are not be feared even in endgames.
Nice trolling there, Greedy
