The greatest chess move of all time

intermediate
MatoJelic Endgame Topalov, veselin Shirov, alexei

The single greatest chess move of all time
Veselin Topalov vs Alexey Shirov 0-1
Gruenfeld Defense: Exchange Variation (D85)
During the 1998 Linares chess tournament Shirov played black against Topalov and won with a piece sacrifice in a bishop and pawn ending.
In 1998 the editor (GM Murray Chandler) of The British Chess Magazine;
after conducting a fairly lengthy survey, gave a list of,
"The Ten Most Amazing Chess Moves Ever Played on the Board."
The Winner was this game. Needless to say not everybody agreed with Murray.
