Magnus Carlsen: "To be honest losing wasn’t that big a deal. 100 games & then the record streak, those were the ones I really cared about, & after that I knew I was going to lose at some point… I was mostly upset about losing in general, not so much the streak" #NorwayChess pic.twitter.com/akVOqd3ePp
