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

    Theoretically, it could be possible. If the 1300 is a genius, a Magnus Carlsen, but  he never plays rated games, the 2700 could be taken aback.

    Magnus Carlsen probably have been at ca 1300 for some days. The 1300 level he jumped trough during the year when he jumped 1000 ratingpoints, which means that he probably was close to 2000 in strenght already when he oficially was 1300, and probably was capable already then to beat extremely strong players.

    This one is close: A player rated 1400 beats a GM with a trap:

    Monkeys can't play chess. They just fling their pieces.

    If the 2700 is "under the influence" it doesn't count. If he has a heart attack or stroke it counts. If his family is being held hostage, it doesn't count. If he was bribed it counts. If he's late and forfeits on time, it doesn't count. If he losses by accidently tipping over the King, it counts. If it's his grandson, it doesn't count. If he resigns because a hot date is waiting, it counts.

    And IF Capablanca was reincarnated, sandbagged his rating and if he was able to bribe Carlsons 2nd with a Million Dollars, sure It's possible.
