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

zborg

Every 400 rating points represents a QUALITATIVE leap is chess playing ability.

In the U.S. only 10 pecent of active tournament players ever break 1800.  That's "2 leaps" from a 1000 rating.  And only 1 percent of active tournament players ever break 2200.

So can 1300 win against 2700?  NOPE.  Except in our dreams.

It ain't computer science.  Sorry.

Anything can happen in these threads.  And often does.

A 1300 player could have read and memorized a trap and be lucky enough for a 2700 player to play the line and fall into an opening trap.

What about two 1300 players - combined they would be the equivalent of a 2600 player - definitely a reasonable match for a 2700

I like Blake's idea.

Since the 1300 has no chance in a million of winning lure the 2700 (GM) into a trap!

No, it was the beginning of an insidious plan to merge ten 1300 rated players into one ultimate chess machine.

Great idea. Down right brilliant! There'll be a Nobel Prize in chess given for this.

Come on man, I told you about my insidious plan in confidence!  How dare you tell everyone my secret!

  It was going to look something like this, but without the eye patch . . .
