Dmitry Andreikin is the Russian Chess Champion

Six players were tied for first with a modest +1 result after the 9 classical rounds of the Russian Chess Superfinal. Who prevailed in the rapid tie-break next day? World Rapid Chess Champion Sergey Karjakin? 6-time Russian Chess Champion Peter Svidler? No. The winner is Dmitry Andreikin, a rising Russian chess star who used to be the World Junior Champion in 2010 and won the Russian Top League quite convincingly this year. Known worldwide as a formidable online blitz player, now he is becoming a force to reckon with in classical chess.

Dmitry rarely gets in the limelight due to having powerful competitors born in 1990: Carlsen (2837), Karjakin (2785) and Nepomniatchi (2704). Meanwhile, Andreikin's live rating is 2718, which makes him #27 in the world and one of the most promising young players.

So far it seems that after getting married Dmitry became much more pragmatic and serious about chess improvement and his life prospects in general. We wish GM Andreikin the best of luck!

Results of the rapid tie-break:

1. Andreikin 4, 2. Karjakin 3.5, 3. Svidler 3, 4. Jakovenko 2.5, 5. Potkin 1.5, 6. Alekseev 0,5

P.S. Both Natalia Pogonina and Dmitry Andreikin are representing Saratov - quite an achievement for the city!
