Magnus Carlsen lost a first game during the entire competition in Round 12. He was defeated by Ukrainian Vassily Ivanchuk. After 12 rounds Norwegian is half a point ahead of Karjakin who beat Teimour Radjabov. 

CARLSEN - IVANCHUK

White sacrificed an exchange and a pawn with one move in order to prevent black knight fixing on a6:
21.c5
(allowing ...Ba6). A doubtful idea that didn't work out.

KAZHGALEYEV - MAMEDYAROV

24.Ngf5!! Bxf5 25.Bg3
With white's advantage. However, it didn't play accurately and Mamedyarov managed to win. 

А rare endgame disaster happened with Veselin Topalov.

TKACHIEV - ТОPALOV

The endgame is undoubtedly won by black, but it still should play accurately.
52...g4?
A mistake letting white knight to fix black pawns and neutralize its king.
53.Nd8! Na7 54.Ne6! g3+ 55.Kf3 Kh3 56.Nf4+ Kh2 57.Ng2 Nc6 58.Nh4 Kh3 59.Ng2

Now the position is drawn, but Topalov managed to lose:
59...h4 60.Ne3 f5 61.Ng2 Na7 62.Ne3 Nb5 63.Ng2 Nd4+ 64.Ke3 Nb5 65.Kf3 Nc7 66.a7 Na8 67.Ne3 f4 68.Ng2 Kh2 69.Nxh4 Nc7 70.Ng2 Kh3 71.Nxf4+ Kh2 72.Ng2 Kh3 73.Ne3 Na8 74.Ke4 Nc7 75.Kd3 Kh2?? 76.Kc4 Kg1 77.Nf5 Kf2 78.Nxg3 Kxg3 79.Kc5 Kf4 80.Kc6 Na8 81.Kb7 1-0

Round 12, results:
Svidler - Dreev 1-0, Kurnosov - Bologan 0-1, Carlsen - Ivanchuk 0-1, Ismagambetov - Grischuk 0-1, Radjabov - Karjakin 0-1, Tkachiev - Topalov 1-0, Gelfand - Morozevcih 1-0
