Think I notice a new trend in the playing of chess amongst the top grandmasters.
More risk taken.
With risk cause imbalance in the game
Seems it is not the most knowledge or/and best preparation tt that decides a game

What must i do to find a site where i can view live all the games? Tried hard but failed.
There are a number of sites. The official site is not helpful, but you can try Susan Polgar’s Blog. She has live games there.
If you mean live feed, then try https://video.russiachess.org/view/899 but the commentary will be in Russian.
