You’d get smashed, but first you need to raise your ratings a about 1500 points.

Oh okay. Seems easy enough. I thought I'd have to do something crazy like sacrifice a large game animal.

The only time I played a GM on this site (I think it's the only one) was during a 1|0 bullet tournament. And the outcome was as expected.

I think it's better for you to start to play National Masters. lol

Maybe you are a genius but your rating only is 1101.

Keep your eye open for simuls. You may not get a GM but you might be able to find a fairly strong player.

Maybe if you follow a GM stream, he might issue open challenges, otherwise your chances are slim to play a GM.

 

On another note, if you are only interested in their precision you can always play the computer at that level.

Get your bullet / blitz rating 2000-2200+.

You will get paired with GM occassionally( some GM are not good at bullet, the best chance to beat GM is at bullet).

I won two GM in 1/0 bullet games.

I got to play (actually playing right now) GM @GHANDEEVAM2003 in daily chess in a club match. But this is very rare though.

If you live somewhere with a big chess community, keep an eye out for a simultaneous exhibition.  For example, the large tournaments in Reno in spring and fall always have a pair of simuls.  I managed to draw GM Sevillano in a simul last year, which was fun!
