Grischuk blunder a bishop ?!

A complete disaster happen to Alexander Grischuk in his game against Fabiano  Caruana in 2019 Altibox Norway Chess Tournament yesterday. Grischuk, who have 8 minutes in his clock compare to 5 minutes and 15 seconds for  Caruana , blunder a full bishop or to be precise ..he give the bishop with 17.Bh6??  for free without any compensation . Watch the video above. The game Grischuk - Fabiano start around 4 hours and 4 minutes in the youtube video above.

What have happen to Grischuk ?  It seems that he  was still affected with his unfortunate start against Levon in the earlier round.
