Duh...you just added to the "still going ".
And why are you so outraged? You are getting all this for free. Besides, at 16 you are supposed to get a car and go find a girl friend. Instead, you hang around an internet site and play a stupid board game.
Tsk...tsk...these kids, nowadays.
That is outragous! I had a car and a hot chick at 15. Chess? You mean Chest! hahaha
who will know if that 1300 rated player might not become the next world champion? may be he has just started his career and played his 2nd match with the 2700 rated player. lol
We already established way back in the thread that we are talking an established 1300 player
BTW, your opening question asks if there is any "chance". Are you not aware that chess is not a matter of luck but of skill?
Perhaps you should have asked: "Does a 1300 rated player have the skill to beat a 2700 player?"
That question would have made sense.
Chess may be a game of skill but chance is also a factor. The 2700 player has a small chance of making an error and the 1300 a small chance of making a good move. And I thought we were going to put this thread to rest already.
Well, you are wrong. There is no way that a 2700 is going to blow a game with a 1300. Players with low ratings are too stupid, ignorant or vain to realize how much skill is involved.
If you want to play something where luck is involved, go with poker. You might have a chance of winning a few pots out of luck. Of course, over many hands, you'd get wiped out because a skilled player will win over your occasional luck.
Dream on if you want to think what you said is true. But, that's all it is...a naiive dream.
If you don't think so, ask yourself this question: "Duh...when was the last time that I won at chess against someone 1400 higher than myself?"
Reread my above comment. Do you see the world win? The 2700 player will make small mistakes and lose to Houdini 3. The 1300 player will make a few good moves and lose to most players.
The 1300 will lose 99% of the time against a 2000 rated player, 2700 rated aka someone like Anand.... no chance
He doesn't get it. But he's certainly not alone.
The skill level for a 2700 may not seem that intimidating to a 1300. One of the things that blinds them is their own myopia, borne out of abject ignorance and wishful thinking.
It's like some kid in the hood does some street fighting and thinks he can take on the world champ. Wait a minute...that did happen in the movie, Rocky Balboa.
Of course, that was FICTION.
A 2700 has devoted his life to chess. That's what he does. A 1300 piddles around with chess. That's what he does.
My two cents.
If anyone actually believes a 1300-rated player would ever have the slightest chance in hell to actually beat a 2700-rated master, you're just being utterly absurd. I would probably take my chances in winning the lottery a hundred times in a row.

Very well put.
Well, thanks. I strive to put very well.
I write and edit "on the fly". You hit that quote button just before I finished editing...a few typos. But probably no one would have cared or noticed anyway.
I notice evry typo.
So doo I.
To be honest, I don`t think so! Depends on what kind of chess and what time control! If 1 min, then I`ll even beat Carlsen, but in real life no one can! Well, if the 2700 is not drunk or something!
lol, I'm an 823 FIDE and I've beaten IMs at 2500 FIDE. It's perfectly possible if a mistake is made.
So, You`re saying that you`re 823 fide and you beat an IM otb? OR IN CHESS.COM? If otb, the guy was totally drunk!
They came to Chet Atkins who I like and said, "Chet, you're the greatest guitarist who has ever lived." He smiled and said, "Gentelmen, you have heard of Segovia. Having a 1300 player beat a 2700 player would be like a Blues guitarist trying to outplay someone like Sharon Isban or Pepe Romero. It is going to happen. The technique that these players have, can not be learned in just a few days or even years. I would say to be great at something takes at least 10,000 hours.
"Duh...when was the last time that I lost at chess against someone 1400 higher than myself?"
The answer is never.
