I think that this is clearly one case were you could be forgiven for caring that Susan Polgar got something wrong.

The position was clearly a draw, but Anand didn't have much time left, at some point he had only 8 minutes, but then increased a bit since he started to play fast moves to gain some extra time on each move. There is nothing wrong with Carlsen continued to play, he probably was counting on the probability that Anand may blunder under time pressure. Also it might be Carlesn's psychological strategy to drain Anand's energy for the next game.
