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

    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.

    So which one is it lol -- a 9 move win or a 31 move win.

    31 moves until I mated him, after 9 moves he was down a queen for a bishop, hence my comment about having him crushed after 9 moves, but him dragging it out instead of resigning.  Shouldn't have needed that much clarification...

    Perhaps clarification as to how this should be compared to other miniatures, for one thing -- is it "still a miniature" as classic 20 move miniatures because you deem some moves in your game "not important?" I ask because you gave the info. So I assumed there was some important thing you wanted us to get out of this, or else you would have just said you won in 30 some moves. But hey, maybe there wasn't, but it looked like there was :)

    And even if it didn't need that much clarification, you still provided probably zero with that comment, since you merely repeated what you said before, so you still couldn't have provided enough of it :)

    Yes, the point is that 1300-rated players flop all over the chessboard as soon as they encounter something they haven't seen before.  I'm only rated 1600+ live, and there was no chance that I was losing that game after 9 moves.  A 2700 is on a different planet than I am; we're not even playing the same game.  The 1300 will never win.
