Candidates 2013, High Voltage Drama, Anything Can Happen

After round 11, Vladimir Karmnik, Russian no. 1 player moved to second place. He beat Teimour in a fine combination while Aronian had a bad day today, he lost to peter Svidler. On the other side Magnus Carlsen maintained his first place by drawing with Alexander Grischuk with black pieces.

However one loss of Carlsen in coming games can change whole predictions for candidates 2013. Carlsen is going play Ivanchuk, Radjabov and Svidler in coming rounds where all three players having capacity to beat Magnus even in last game with Radjabov ; Carlsen was exchange down and later on created fortress for draw while beating Aronian today Svidler demonstrated that still 'Game is not over' , anything can happen as margin is not high.
