Andreiken wins Russian Championship

Russia is still the country with the largest number of chess masters in the world.  (2nd is Germany)  They recently held their national championship.  After the "normal" tournament was done, there were 6 Grandmasters tied for first.  There was a rapid playoff and the winner was Grandmaster Dmitry Andreikin.  Below is his most exciting win where he shows how to demolish the Caro-Kann.  The fireworks start on move 18 and his opponent resigned 5 moves later.  Enjoy the game:
