    To everyone who thinks there was no draw offer, please check 0.24 seconds. After 4.Nc3 Anish offers a draw, Magnus declines it and plays on.

      @Biggz King not really some times people reply some times the dont it's common practice in a tournament if you decline a draw, to just play the next move. At least in my experience.

    I only play computer chess but the computer refuses to give up no matter what. I once had three queens, both rooks, a knight and a bishop against......a king. I was fooling around but the damn computer just said screw it, when you get mate I'll stop.
