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

2700 is really super-high. Very very hard for them to make errors unless put under the sort of pressure sub-2500 players simply won't be able to exert on them.

I think the best chance would be if the 1300 player happens to have prepared an opening trap with an engine and the GM falls into it in a simul/blitz or something.

I can't see any chance this is happening if the 1300 has to think for himself (not that super-GM's tend to fall into opening traps for that matter eitherbut an engine might be able to find a nasty one).

And it better be the sort of trap that mates or at least nets the 1300 the Queen for no compensation.

I wouldn't expect a 2700 level player to have this kind of hole in his opening repertoire !

every 1300 player with Carlsen's strength can beat a 2700.

If that player had Carlsen's strength wouldn't he be higher than a 1300?

I just noticed that 1300 and 2700 add up to an even 4000.

The fact that it is evenly divisible by 1, 10, 100 and 1000 means, yes, you can beat a 2700 under certain circumstances.

Number Theory, right?

of course.

the 1300 player could be better, but not play online as much.

also the 2700 player could make a bad mistake.

Maybe,if the 1300 player's coach taught him a stratagy that is played only like 4 times in chess history and than,Maybe the 1300 player will win.But only in a small chance

after 10 beers maybe

I get careless and lose to people I could normally easily beat. I imagine this would happen less for the grand masters, but it is possible.

Should you get a chance and a queen and land,

Priests and knights and folks to command,

What's stopping you from beating the world,

Since all you need is inside your hand?

You can have a chance and a queen and land,

Priests and knights and folks to command,

If you're not a king as a real king is,

Then all you have will be dusts in sand.

Possible: Yes.

Likely: No.

The biggest chance will be if the 1300 player is a sand begger and the 2700 player just stopped playing turnaments for 10 years,than there might be a big chance there

I'm not even sure then.  Didn't Kasparov say Fischer was playing around 2500-2600 range when he returned to face Spassky again?  Wasn't that around 20 years after Fischer stopped?  He was the first 2700+ player, so a 10 year gap wasn't enough to drop him past the 2000 mark.

ClavierCavalier,I said "the 1300 could be a sand begger" a sand begger is someone is someone who loses on purpes to get to a lower rating,then to win in low rated turnaments and get the money.So the sand begger might of droped from 2800 to 1300 on purpes to win money,so that I said "maybe the 2700 didn't play in turnaments in 10 years" isn't really importent,It's just like the chance that a 2800 will win a 2700.

The first diagram demonstrates how a 1300 player handles an advantage against a 1900.

Of course, he would be more relaxed and play better moves after a blunder by a member of the WORLD TOP FIFTY.

Oh, I guess that evens the odds.  Actually,a sand begger could be one who should challenge Carlsen but their actual rating is 657.  This gives some better odds for the 1300's!
