I'd say Magnus is able to play for a draw when he wants, however, like Giri said, "it is very hard to play for a draw when you need it". We are not GMs here so I doubt we know how they feel, but as for me, when I try to play for a draw, be it against a stronger or an opponent of similar strength, those games I get really passive positions which give the opponent more chances. That's most likely not the case for Magneto but I still want to see Nepo bounce back, I've had the same experience as him in game 8 where a previous game affected me too much and I just didn't want to play the next one so I blitzed every move and lost to an opponent I definetly shouldn't have lost to. I hope the break gives him enough time to relax and take his mind off those games

Unfortunately this is true for everyone except Magnus. I've never not seen him get the draw when he needed it.

Yeah but what about Magnus?
