King Magnus keeps shining

The reigning World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen has played in the International Chess Festival “Festa da Uva” held in Caxias do Sul in Brazil between March 6 and 9, 2014.

The reigning World Champion continues annihilating competition in the rapid events in Brazil. First he won a four-player knockout event, where he did concede only a single draw (that qualified him to the final ) and he was in trouble in just one game. At the end of the day he took the tournament, no questions asked.
