Another nomination for Kasparov's best game

A couple people wrote to me disputing that the 1985 game with Karpov was Kasparov's greatest, instead offering this one from 1999 against Veselin Topalov. The Topalov game features one of the most stunning attacking combinations ever executed at this level of play. Just looking at the dates for these two games emphasizes what is most amazing about Kasparov, namely that he remained at the top of the game for 15+ years.
