How often is the position relatively stable, yet the winning move is h3!? Watch and see what GM Harikrishna forsaw well in advance - that his brilliant avalanche against GM Nakamura's king would only work if he first prevented a counterattack. The pawn structure is reminiscent of the famous game Karpov-Gligoric, Leningrad 1973. Suffice to say, Karpov won it much differently than Hariskrishna!
