The greatest game ever?

As it is World Chess Day, I thought I would present a game that some consider the greatest game of chess ever. It was played between Karpov and Kasparov in their 1985 World Championship Match, and ended in a glorious victory for Kasparov. At the time Kasparov's pawn sacrifice in the opening was considered very strong, although Karpov did find an equalising line in a later tournament.
