Magnus leaves the building: "This week I’m going to Denmark for a small exhibition, then I’m going to Scotland to play a rapid tournament this weekend against Vishy, Ding & some Russian, probably Karjakin. Then the weekend after that it’s Norway Chess, so it’s pretty busy!"
Further evidence from Karjakin himself that it is likely to be him:

Just wondering how both the Simuls went? Any results for any of our players against either Vishy or Karjakin...?
Apologies if its posted elsewhere Tongue
Both Anand and Karjakin won all their games.

Having said that there was some good chess played by the Scottish players.  I have emailed all and asked for a copy of the games - some have come in already with others still to come. Andy B is also looking for them for the next issue of Scottish Chess e-Mag.
Excellent, look forward to seeing them in the eMag then!
I have now added a link on the News Page item to a Video, from Chessbase India, showing the Anand Simultaneous matches v CS Juniors.
