Can a 500 rated player beat a 2800 rated player?

Daybreak57

Can it be done?

Yes, the 2800 rated player just needs to resign for no reason whatsoever... but to answer your question... no, not even 1 game out of a million with queen odds could a 500 rated win..

Impossible, even you lowered down the rating to 1500. 500 has no chance.

I'm kind of surprised that a 1500 USCF player would ask this question.

You've gotta be kidding me. On occasion, I've seen GM streamers (Krikor, Hammer, etc.) lose to 1500 rated players on online blitz. But a 500 player??? I, as a 1400 player, crush them in less than 20 moves. If they have a <0.1 percent chance of beating me, what chance will they have against a super-GM? *None*

Time for a new topic then

Can a 1500 rated player ask if a 500 rated player can beat a 2800 rated player?

Does a 500 rated player know what mate is?  It would have to be by accident

 The whole site knows you sandbag too much.

he/she/it knows the site knows.  just kids with too much time on their hands.  like jeth colderas.  they're challenging the site admins to do something about it.  the community can only do so much.

Yeah, I mean, there's a Goldilocks zone. Some people don't sandbag enough, some sandbag just the right amount, but you YGNR, you take it way too far.

A true beginner is probably under 500.

And they're often a surprising mix. They'll see moves and have ideas you don't expect them to, but then they'll surprise you with something completely absurd like thinking K+N vs K can force checkmate, and then you remember, oh yeah, beginners don't know the basics.

My USCF rating is 696 and I know what mate is.  Not quite 500 but close
