    RHP rating difference is still 539 points, no matter what time control is used.

    his opponent is obviously no 1900 blitzer. more like 1200.

    Still, the 500 RHP points stand between them (I want my argument to succeed)

    It shows there are no easy games.Every win has to be earned.

    I once beat somebody rated 2600 on chess21.com but the site is closed now so I cant prove it.
    I dont think I could ever beat somebody rated 800 points higher then me, since most of them are either engines or grand masters who are extremely good blitzers.

    1389 point difference here:
    Game 5832327

    The largest possible rating difference on this site would be if Weyerstrass at 2460 played Imnewtochess on 514 for a difference of 1956 points.
