In this game we encounter a really new idea in Black's 3..Na6 !? This variation has only appeared since 2015. Black gives up 2 bishops for two knights in the opening in an attempt to better control the center. Vallejo plays impatiently though, and allows the position to open up profitably for Harikrishna's two bishops and the fact that the two sides are castled on opposite wings increases the dynamics. The result is a strong attack featuring the White bishops functioning like razor sharp knives.
