Speed Chess Championship Information...

SportivaMan

Hello,

Is there any updated information for this event?  I can't even find an update to Hikaru's recent victory and it's certainly nowhere on the "Events" tab subheading.  I feel like chess.com does a poor job keeping their tournaments' results easily available to their users.  I remember the same problem from another similar tournament.  The other tournaments not run by chess.com are totally updated and have the cool updated standings an stuff.  Is that possible for SCC and future chess.com events? I hate getting the link to the enormous, rarely updated, event page for it.

Thanks.  Now where is So beats Artemiev? and when is Nakamura facing Nipo?  When is their winner playing So?  Are these dates not yet decided? A link to an article is thoughtful, thank you, but doesn't address the issue. 

I enjoy following the SCC but it's weird that this site updates almost all other tournaments almost immediately besides the ones that they put on.  Perhaps they don't have set dates which makes it difficult but I don't see why they can't make a regular tournament page for these like they do for say... The London Chess Classic or the Chinese Chess Classic.  Side note: it'd be nice for these tournament pages to have dates for each round.  

At least try to make a point to update the bracket on the main page within a few hours of the victory, that can't be that hard... that's the minimum that would make me shut my face...
