However, he has begun to concentrate on classical chess, where he is making a name for himself. He triumphed at the 2010 World Junior Tournament at the age of 20 and clinched the Russian Chess Championship in 2012 & 2018, but his breakthrough came in 2012. For the first time, his rating was above 2700, and he clinched the Russian Premier Division to advance to the Russian Tournament Superfinal. He was the unexpected victor in a tournament that included all of Russia’s best grandmasters like Vladimir Kramnik and Alexander Morozevich.
Andreikin’s speed chess abilities came in handy at the 2013 chess World Cup, wherein despite triumphing in only one classical match, he advanced to the finale versus Kramnik. Despite losing that competition, he had already advanced to the 2014 Candidates Championship. He started the event with a rough start, but as the tournament progressed, his mental fortitude allowed him to create a turnaround with victories over Veselin Topalov and Levon Aronian. His fifty percentage results earned him rating points and a respectable fifth position. Competing in tournaments with higher rated players is likely in the future for the staked Russian if he continues to progress his skills. He currently has a FIDE rating of 2729 as of July 2022, with a peak rating of 2743 as of June 2016
At the age of nine years, Andreikin had made himself a name in chess history by triumphing in the U10 category of the 1999 World Youth tournament. He progressed over the years, and in 2008 at Minsk, he clinched the Fourth Inautomarket Open, while in the Chigorin Memorial Tournament, he shared third place with four others.
In the World Junior Chess tournament held in Poland (2010), Andreikin clinched the trophy, and that same year, he was a victor in the Chigorin Memorial. He competed at the Baku Open Tournament, where he shared the second position with Sutovsky Emil, and in the eleventh Aeroflot Open, he shared the fourth place with four others.
2012 was another celebratory year as he triumphed in the 65th Russian Chess Tournament held in Moscow. In the 2013 Chess World Cup that was being played in Norway, Andreikin was ranked second after being defeated by Vladimir Kramnik. His performance helped him advance to the following year’s Candidates Tournament, where he competed and was ranked third overall.
He was eliminated from the 2015 Chess World Cup by Sergey Karjakin, who at last won the competition. Thus, being knocked out of the tournament meant Andreikin couldn’t compete in the following year’s Candidates Tournament. Therefore, in 2016, he participated in competitions like the Hasselbacken Open (Stockholm), the European Blitz Chess Tournament, and the Abu Dhabi Chess Festival, where he emerged victorious. Andreikin became a gold medalist in China’s Rapid Chess Event (Men’s Category). Later in 2018, he earned the 71st Russian Chess Tournament, which appeared in his career in the second season, winning after defeating Dmitry Jakovenko in the rapid semifinals.
At the start of 2022, he competed at the 2022 FIDE Grand Prix. He topped his group with a score of 4 out of 6 in the return fixture and thrashed Anish Giri in the playoffs with a score of 2.5 points of the possible 4 points in both classical and quick time frames. In the finale, he was beaten by Richard Rápport with a score of 0.5 out of 2. As a result of individual circumstances, he pulled off from the remaining fixtures of the Grand Prix. With a score of 10 points overall, he ranked 5th in the competition.
Dimitry Is the reigning Junior World Number nine, the 1999 U10 World victor in Spain, and the champion of multiple chess Opens.
