Black 63 in this game is maybe one of the weirdest moves I've ever seen in professional Go. It looks like a mistake in the game record and it shows even pro's can loose it sometimes...

White 86 in this game is quite remarkable and generated a lot of discussion. All observers were impressed by it: creating large-scale influence, setting up an invasion and threatening black's stones at the top of the board.

This game is full of remarkable moves, not suprisingly since both players are well known for their artistic style of playing and exceptional ideas. Judge for yourself when replaying this great fighting game and especially appreciate black's last move...

At move 101 a ko starts which continues for over 60 moves (which is a remarkable fact by itself). But the reason the game is included here is black's ko treat at move 167, a move missed by many, if not all observers of the game. Can you see what happens when white would connect the ko at that point?
