Philadelphia Open 2013 Rd6,IM Hambleton A

TWIC 960
The 3.Nd2 h6 is now quite fashionable. In rd6, Xiong gambited the d-pawn against IM Hambleton but got nothing and Hambleton consolidated while doing nothing really special.

Xiong,Jeffrey (2330) - Hambleton,A (2463) 
French 3.Nd2 h6[C03]
7th Philadelphia Open Philadelphia USA (6), 30.03.2013

Position 1
White is staking everything on the f5 break for the pawn. Black has various options open. What do you recommend for black?
  • 26...Nxa3(white is bluffing-take the material and consolidate)
  • 26...Bf8(safely keep the P+)
  • Something else
Black to Play
