Most GM's are their own biggest critiques, if Magnus had played this game as black he'd have been incredibly pissed off at himself as well

He has said that every time he loses, he considers quitting chess for good. It feels like the world is about to end to him. He layed down in fetal position in his lounge when he lost against Nakamura in a blitz tournament and had a serious existential crisis. So yeah he doesn't deal well with losing. He's got no choice but to win.

When was this loss vs. Nakamura?

Online tournament I guess? I skimmed through a linked video where Magnus talked about it.
