And the bronze medal goes to

GM Surya Ganguly gave a very entertaining lecture at the Canberra Chess Club just after this years Doeberl Cup. During the talk the topic of 'Best Moves of All Time' came up, in the context of a very famous Shirov ending. This particular move wasn't in my top 3, although it was fairly high up.
What is in my top 3 are two games I have posted about previously, plus the one below. My absolute favourite moves is Rashid Nezhmetdinov's 12.Qxf6 followed by Spassky's 14. ... Rh1 But coming in in third place is Vassily Ivanchuk's 21.Qg7 against Alexei Shirov

Ivanchuk,Vassily (2735) - Shirov,Alexei (2690) [D44]
Hoogovens Wijk aan Zee (3), 1996
