In February 2012, tied for 4th-8th with Alexander Khalifman, Maxim Rodshtein, Fabiano Caruana and Hrant Melkumyan in the 11th Aeroflot Open.
In August 2012, Andreikin won the 65th Russian Chess Championship in Moscow after winning a rapidplay playoff against five other players. 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.
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. This result qualified him for the 2014 Candidates Tournament, where he finished equal 3rd-5th out of 8 players, with a score of 7/14. As of 2019, this is the only time he has qualified for the Candidates.
In October-November 2014 he scored a major success in the second leg of the FIDE Grand Prix in Tashkent, winning the tournament ahead of Hikaru Nakamura, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Fabiano Caruana and eight other elite grandmasters. His score of 7/11 gave him a performance rating of 2852. However his other Grand Prix results were not as good, and he was knocked out the Chess World Cup 2015 by eventual winner Sergey Karjakin, so he missed qualification for the 2016 Candidates Tournament.
In 2016, Andreikin won the Hasselbacken Open (on tiebreak from B. Adhiban) in Stockholm, the Abu Dhabi Chess Festival and the European Blitz Chess Championship in Tallinn. In 2017, he won the gold medal in the men's rapid chess event of the IMSA Elite Mind Games in Huai'an, China.
