Oct1404   yoozum: lol, worst move EVER. 

Dec1005   chesscrazy: <yoozum> He touched the king so he had to move it. The only legal move he could do was Ke2. 

Feb2106   McCool: Why did he touch his king then?


May1306   itz2000: touch move?
human instinct? 

Aug1306   siilarsi: <chesscrazy> <McCool> <itz2000> This is a chess site! Pervs! 

Sep2508   fref: What a beautiful game! No really, what the heck Lindemann thought when he played 3.Ke2? 

Jan2709   number 23 NBer: Okay, <siilarsi>, as far as I can see, <itz2000>'s comment is the only one that could have subtext, and I don't understand what the subtext would be anyway. Are you being sarcastic(well, I suppose were would be a more accurate word)?

  whiteshark: If it helps you along: <Lindemann proved in 1882 that e^α is transcendental for every nonzero algebraic number α, thereby establishing that π is transcendental.> 

Jul2110   jbtigerwolf: chesscrazy is right. Lindemann touched the King, so he had to move it. I am 99.99% sure that is the reason. The touchmove rule seems harsh, but it is necessary for when there is a trap... you don't see the trap until you touch your piece. Traps and surprises are an exciting part of the game. 

Jul2110   acirce: <Lindemann touched the King, so he had to move it. I am 99.99% sure that is the reason.> That's funny, because it wasn't the reason. Look at the game page, it's explained there. 

Jul2810   jbtigerwolf: No, the annotation says that Black did not make the text checkmate move, 3...♕e4#, but instead played on, toying with his opponent. It does not explain why White made his 3rd move, 3.♔e2. So it is an open finding as to why White made that move. He either touched the King and had to move or was simply careless.

  alexmagnus: <Lindemann proved in 1882 that e^α is transcendental for every nonzero algebraic number α, thereby establishing that π is transcendental> Hm, how is pi and algebraic power of e?! Did I miss something basic in my mathematics days at the university? Although we were never shown the proof of pi's transcendence  and, funnily, I wanted to look it up tomorrow, for a totally different reason.

  alexmagnus: Aha, so it was a proof by contradiction.  if pi were algebraic, i*pi would be algebraic too, and, by Lindemann's theorem cited above, e^(i*pi) would be transcendental. But e^(i*pi) is not just algebraic, it is actually integer, so i*pi, and therefore pi itself, must be transcendental.
