maybe if the 2700 player has his eyes shut and its a 960 game :P
A 1300 elo has zero chance against a 2700 elo, even against 2000 elo a 1300 elo has zero chance.
1300 vs 2000: Maybe slightly more than zero. In Politiken cup the startlist was split. Top ranked meet bottom ranked in round one. The rating difference was ca 600, 2000 meeting 1400,2700 against 2100 etc. among ca 215 games . 2 weaker players won.
Whatever the result of the game, the 1300 will assure himself that he won. That's how it works here when patzers get schooled by titled players.
The odds that you flip a coin 1000 times and get less than 300 heads is not actually zero. But it is so tiny that you can do as if it were zero.
The same works here. You basically need that the 2700 player gets a heart attack during play...
(About this whole topic: how that trolling farm is still alive is beyond my understanding.)
Is there any hope left for me?
