In August 2012, Andreikin won the 65th Russian Chess Championship in Moscow after winning a rapid playoff against five other players.[9] In the Tal Memorial played in June 2013, Andreikin was the lowest rated player, but he went through the tournament undefeated with eight draws and a win against Vladimir Kramnik, which gave him a shared third to fifth place.[10] In the Chess World Cup 2013, held in Norway from 11 August to 2 September, Andreikin finished in second place, losing to Kramnik in the four-game final match 1½–2½.[11] This result qualified him for the 2014 Candidates Tournament.[12]
