Magnus Carlsen played in the 13th Festival da Uva 5th-9th March 2014. Carlsen won all three events he played in drawing just three games on the way.
6th-7th March was a 4 player tournament with time controls of g/16.
Day 1 was a double round robin where Carlsen scored 16/18 (3pts for a win just 1 draw) ahead of Gilberto Milos 8pts, Andres Rodriguez Vila 7pts and Rafael Leitao 2pts. I have all the games plus three more I can't explain.
Knockout on day two was won by Magnus Carlsen who beat Rodriguez Vila 1.5-0.5 in the semi-final and Gilberto Milos 2-0 in the final in a cube glass at the pavilion of the grape festival.
Later on March 7th Carlsen was at the Iguatemi Shopping Mall in the city of Caxias do Sul at 19h00 (22:00 GMT) local time for a simul and lecture.
Carlsen played in a two day rapid open at the Recreio da Juventude 8th-9th March with different time controls. (R1 & R2 g/16 minutes, R3 & R4 g/30 minutes, R5, R6, R7, R8 and R9 g/60 minutes. Players alongside Carlsen in the open included GMs Sam Shankland, Sergei Tiviakov and Peter Heine Nielsen. Carlsen won the event with a score of 8.5/9 with only a draw against Milos (who also drew with him in the 4 player event). Carlsen ground down his second Peter Heine Nielsen in a long rook and pawn ending in the final round.
Many other lectures and events too.
It has been reported that Carlsen is getting four World Cup Final tickets as part of his fee for playing the event.

Me on the day of the 1000th issue. Photo © Mark Crowther | http://www.theweekinchess.com
An article on the occasion of the 1000th issue of TWIC outlining a short history, thanks to the many people who've helped and where I think the future may lay both for myself and the magazine. I really hope to be around in some form or another for a long time. I would welcome suggestions for improvements to the website and the magazine.
You can view the first issue here I will try and put the text of all 1000 issues up over the next few weeks and will for a start make my personal ChessBase file of all the issues available for sale. People should email me personally about that.
