Amazing blunder by Grischuk
Grischuk played unbelievable move Bh6?? 
What do you think, what's the reason?
Do you call it blunder or something else?

It shows that he is a human being. Now a lot of moves like this. He was sure that The queen was covering h7-Square, but why was the Knight there?  It's a blunder, normal on my level, very unusual on his level. Good to see in one way. Terrible in another.

When you play so much Chess and constantly staring at positions all day, it's easy to get blindsided.

I am willing to wager he intended Nf1 followed by Bh6, but after thinking about his moves, he tricked his mind into thinking he had already moved the knight, and made the bishop move.

I think you can look at a board so much and study the position until you confuse yourself and a blunder looks logical. I have done that before making a move I would never have made if I wasn’t studying the position too hard. I think there is a fine line in concentration before the mind plays overloaded.

       I think  Jay garrison explanation is perfect.
         Grischuk thought he had the knight in other square As f1 :)

Okay :) 
Here are my thoughts.

It's not a blunder. I don't call this as a blunder.
It's lack of concentration or too much pressure on the nervious system. 

Especially when we look at how much time is left for Grischuk, we can imagine what a mental pressure he was during the game...

1. Right Mood - Right Move! 
Don't lose your concentration
2. Time management! This is a very important topic!
