DMITRY ANDREIKIN
(born Feb-05-1990) Russia
PRONUNCIATION:
[what is this?]
FM (2001); International Master (2003); Grandmaster (2007); Russian U10 Champion (1999); Russian Junior (U20) Champion (2009 and 2010); World Junior Champion (2010); World Cup finalist and runner-up (2013); Candidate (2014).

Preamble

Andreikin quickly developed as a strong player, competing in and consistently making the leader boards in youth and junior tournaments. His junior career culminated in winning the World Junior Championship in 2010. Three years later, he reached a new zenith in his career when he reached the final of the World Cup 2013 to qualify for the Candidates Tournament 2014.

Championships

<Youth> Andreikin won the 1999 U10 World Championship and was runner up in the same event in 2000. Subsequently he competed in a number of Russian and European Youth Championships without bothering the top of the leader board. However, his experience in these events started to give him traction in 2004, when he placed =1st at the World U14 Championship with 8.5/11 (losing on tiebreak to Ildar Khairullin), and in 2006, when he placed =3rd in the Russian U18 Higher League Championship, half a point behind Roman Nechepurenko and Pogos Nakhapetiane.

<Junior (U20)> He first competed in the World Junior Championship when he was 16 in the World Junior Championship (2006), scoring 7.5/13 (par rating). In 2008, he competed in the Russian Junior Championship and the World Junior Championship (2008). In 2009, he won the Russian Junior Championship ahead of Ivan Popov and Ian Nepomniachtchi, successfully defending his title in 2010 ahead of Nepomniachtchi and Khairullin. His crowning achievement as a Junior came in 2010, when he scored 10/13 to secure the World Junior Championship (2010), this victory qualifying him for the World Cup of 2011.

<National> He first competed in the Russian Higher League Championship, the qualifier for the Russian Superfinal, in 2004 at the age of 14, and scored 5/9 – and a GM norm - amongst a sea of grandmasters. He competed in the higher league championship regularly since then without any especially outstanding results until he came 1st on tiebreak in the Russian Chess Championships Higher League (2012), which advanced him to contest the Russian Superfinals (2012), where he placed =1st. He went on to win the round-robin Russian Superfinals (Tiebreak) (2012) by 4/5 (+3 =2) to take first place overall and to become the 2012 Russian Champion. This result qualified him for direct seeding to the Russian Superfinals (2013), where he placed =3rd on 5.5/9, a point behind the joint winners Ian Nepomniachtchi and Peter Svidler.

<Continental> Aged 15, he first contested the continental championship at the 6th European Individual Championship (2005) scoring 6.5/13. He scored 7.5/11 at the European Individual Championship (2008), qualifying for the World Cup 2009. He placed =2nd (4th on tiebreak) with 8/11 at the 13th European Individual Championship (2012), qualifying him for the World Cup 2013.

<World> At the World Cup (2009), he was eliminated by Finnish GM Tomi Nyback in the blitz tiebreaker of round 1. In the World Cup (2011) he defeated GM Murtas Kazhgaleyev of Kazakhstan in the first round before losing in the second round to Russian GM Evgeny Tomashevsky. In the World Cup (2013), he has defeated Iranian GM Pouria Darini in the first round, Vietnamese GM Ngoc Truongson Nguyen in the second round, compatriot GM Alexey Dreev in the third round and compatriot GM Sergey Karjakin in the Round of 16 (round 4), the winner of the previous World Cup and former Candidate, compatriot GM Peter Svidler in the quarter final (round 5) and his close friend and compatriot GM Evgeny Tomashevsky in the semi-final (round 6), thereby qualifying for both the World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) and for the World Cup in 2015. He met former World Champion and compatriot GM Vladimir Kramnik in the final, losing the first game and drawing the remaining three to become the runner up of the 2013 World Cup. At the Candidates held in March 2014 in Khanty-Mansiysk, he scored above expectations by placing =3rd (5th on tiebreak behind Kramnik and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov) with 7/14 behind Viswanathan Anand and Karjakin.

Standard Tournaments

In 2001, aged 11 and already an FM rated over 2200, he scored 8/11 to place equal first in a category 3 round-robin Masters Tournament in Rjazan alongside Vladimir P Vasiliev and Tikhon Koshil. Before his 12th birthday he almost reached the 2400 rating mark. A few months later he was competing in open tournaments alongside international masters and grandmasters, eg: in the White Knights 2001 event, where he still gained significant ratings points even though he scored only 3/8 against rated players. In 2002, he won the International Festival Section D event, a category 2 round robin event, with 11/14. In 2003, he was =1st in the Ryazan Regional Championship with 9.5/13 alongside Stepavoj, Oleg Aleshin, and Alexander N Panchenko.

  twinlark: Probably "with these things".
Aug-30-13  SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: <His rating has dropped?>

With another loss (and maybe a 3rd) he gets a demotion from goldfish back to barracuda. Maybe a barracuda played in the finals after all. Oh, the irony.

  cro777: "I think Andreikin is clearly underrated and deserves to play in the Candidates, but he needs to work on his openings" (Vladimir Kramnik)
Sep-02-13  csmath: I think Andreikin openings are fine albeit very restricted, in particular when you consider he has beaten Kramnik in Dortmund out of opening. I think he is well prepared for what he plays.

Only with Kramnik he looked a bit shaky here.
And that is all relative since I do not see that he lost anything out of the opening. As a matter of fact Kramnik himself was very lucky in the second game. Only in the first game he might have played less optimal opening but I do not think anyone could foresee that during the game.

What is problematic about him is the lack of desire to fight. For a young player that is rather strange. It has to remind you of Leko.

  cro777: Andreikin knows that he needs to work on his openings.

"I decided that my openings were not ready for this tournament", Andreikin said after playing Dreev.

That's why he went for the strategy of drawing his classical games and trying to go for the tiebreaks as quickly as possible.

Sep-02-13
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Andreikin said he would be better prepared for the Candidates.

He revealed that he was never in such bad shape for an event. He said he had given priority to the Tal Memorial and Dortmund and he didn't have time to prepare for this event at all and in particular his openings were seriously deficient.

He laughed at the success of the Torre and Trompowsky he had used to get through in earlier rounds.

Sep-03-13  Conrad93: <Please pay attention - Dmitry Andreikin>

That makes sense.

  brankat: Happy Birthday Dmitry!
Feb-05-14  dx9293: The next World Champion? I don't expect it, but it wouldn't shock me.
Feb-05-14  Penguincw: Happy 24th birthday to GM Dmitry Andreikin.

Good luck at the upcoming Candidates.

Even though he's the underdog, it would be interesting if he won the tournament, since it would be the battle of the 1990 generation in the WCC (well, Karjakin was born that year too ;) ).

Feb-12-14  RedShield: It's a bit of a stretch but there's something about the eyes and mouth that reminds me of the English actor, Simon MacCorkindale.
Mar-29-14  Petrosianic: Andreikin is up 14 spots since the rating list came out (from #42 to #28). That must be close to a record.
Mar-30-14  RedShield: Since when?

<From 1971 to 1980, there was one main rating list published each year (for a total of 10), initially published in July from 1971 to 1973, then once in May (1974), before switching to annual publication in January from 1975 to 1980 (in this period, some supplements and amendments were also published).

From 1981 to July 2000, two lists per year were published, in January and July (for a total of 39 lists). In July 2000, the publication schedule was increased to four times a year (January, April, July, October) operating from July 2000 to July 2009 (for a total of 36 lists). In July 2009, the publication schedule was increased again, to six times a year (January, March, May, July, September, November) operating from July 2009 to July 2012 (for a total of 18 lists). In July 2012 the publication schedule was increased again to the current monthly schedule.>

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...

Mar-30-14  RedShield: Off the back of his impressive showing in the Candidates, it'd be nice if he could secure himself a couple of invites to super-GM events in the West. The Russian circuit is still strong enough that their best players can make a good living without having to venture too far abroad. The game's elite could do with some fresh Russian blood.
Mar-30-14  dx9293: <RedShield> I think Andreikin will start to get some invites. He has proven to be a more than worthy participant in supertournaments.
