    Game 5719271

    I recently beat a 1900 player (his rating dropped a bit after I beat him) in style. I thought I was really stuffed when He played the French defence as I absolutely HATE the french defense and constantly lose to it yet I managed to force a resignation within 15 moves. So I was wondering what everyone elses highest rated victories were. Which games were you the huge underdog but came out on top?

    My top 3 games Game 4446698 Game 5554023 and Game 3363092(The last one doesn't really count, because I won it when he was rated 1400 or something, but the game looks much more impressive now)

    The highest rated player I nicked for a full point was 2016 (USCF) back in 1984. It was an OTB game at the Seattle Chess Club. The guy's name was Abelnour-Ziad. This 84 move gem took over 5 hours. I'm afraid I don't have the game anymore, but it was a real thrill. (I wish I could play like that everytime!)

    Was that in a serious game? Can you post it here?

    Both me vs. Basman and the people at my club vs. Nunn were in simultaneous displays.

    But leaving that information off makes it more impressive

    I've never beaten anyone high rated.

    I think my highest beat so far is an finnish IM rated about 2400. Funniest thing is that in the tournament where I beat him, he had 100% score so far (I think 7/7 or something). And then he was paired against me, unfortunately for him.

    This is probably the strongest player I have ever beaten (rated 2300+ for quite some time)
    Game 4596493

    This is currently the highest rated player I have beaten:
