"What has happened to the orange juice we always used to see next to you during games?", Magnus was asked at the post-game press conference. 
"I no longer drink orange juice" the champion replied, to general surprise. 

"Doesn't it play on your nerves, the attention paid to your character?", he was asked.
"I am used to it all", replied the Norwegian, who is a man of few words.

The non-chess questions were the most interesting part of the press conference at the end of the game Carlsen-Mamedyarov in round two of the Gashimov's Memorial. Both players were pretty clear about the whole game: Shakhriyar's 10...Ne4? was agreed to be a serious mistake, after which White had a large advantage and confidently realised it. The Azeri also criticised the move 8...а5.

So Magnis wins his first game in the event and, with Kramnik and So, is currently leading.
