They would have chance but it would be easier for someone who is lower rated and had a "higher rating ceiling" to do better. Feldberg made a serious run the USDGC last year but I think this tells more about his consistency than his ceiling.
The more rated rounds you play the more accurate your rating is. (usually your peaks and valleys in reference to you rating are smaller aka deviation) Soo a person with an inaccurate rating with potential of becoming good has an advantage at a rating based tournament compared to a person with a accurate rating. I'm not a mathamagician and could not explain the equations to you but this is my understanding of how ratings work. Mr. Chuck Kennedy can chime in and correct me.
