Daily Chess Puzzle

February 10, 2019
Today’s puzzle is a change from the normal, inspired by a tweet by Olimpiu Orcan-see my posting of 7th February 2018.
On an occasional basis I will post a challenge to see if reader’s can spot the games which had particular moves.
 
Puzzle
 
Which famous game had   47…Bh3!!    in it?
Solution
I remember British Chess Magazine deciding that this move was the most amazing move of all time, and even having the position on its envelope at the time. And I also remember being flabbergasted by the move, and not fully understanding why it worked.
Topalov Veselin - Shirov Alexei (47...Bh3!!)
Topalov v Shirov, 4 March 1998
