I think blitzing (much intuitive play) is dropping that many points compared to longchess. Magnus did play a fantastic blitzsession here on chess.com, and the fact that he played his blitzgames at 2400 (or was it 2450?) longchess-strengt was considered sensationally strong by IM Rensch (hope i remember correctly).
If we play intuitive and fast we can drop very far below our maximum.
If we add all our focus and calculation and time the quality of the games can be as strong as possible.
My theory is that a 2700 will close to always beat a 2200 if he works hard.
If he doesnt put in work, he doesnt release his superpower, and that huge gap is severly reduced.
The 2100 teenagers I know is very good chessplayers and does perform between 2300 and 2500 in their best tournaments, and below their ratinglevel at the worst ones.
Even an unrated player can defeat Magnus Carlsen .......
You guys aren't done yet? :)
Not yet, they are analy taken.
Oh, well thanks for saying that I guess. Way to brighten my day.
Once when I was around 800-900 I beat a guy that was 200-300 points above me so I would say definitely yes, a 1300 could beat a 2700, or maybe even a 4000 player.
