Could you please restore all the games in this round
so I can play through Dubove v. Karjakin? All but one have disappeared. Thank you. JXM

@dadian these "live" articles appear before the round has been played and then the round is played, which is shown live on the page and the crosstables are not refreshed at the end. I think it's a good thing, because if both the round games are finished and replayable AND the crosstable has the results, then it's no longer "live" in any sense. So, if you open a "live" article and see a crosstable that is older than the one you already know, then you also know that the games were played yesterday.

In most of the reports on the Russian Superfinals -- Men's and Women's -- the crosstables are almost never up-to-date. The game results are always up-to-date, so why aren't the crosstables?
