Opening Explorer (1...h6) looks pretty useless

Nov-21-16  Paarhufer: Besenthal gave 1..h6?! on chessbase, and wrote: 'Twenty years ago, this would have been a complete absurd move, especially in a Bundesliga game. But the times have changed.' (My translation.)

1.. h6 deserves also today nothing but a ? and is a complete pointless provocation. Moreover, after looking at van Foreest's better games I think it doesn't help him to get a position, where he can excel.

I watched the match Hockenheim vs DJK yesterday with interest, and his early loss, caused by other mistakes later in the game, seemed to put the whole team under pressure, and finally they lost 2:6. He is only 15 years old.
