I'm pretty sure anyone who has played and studied chess knew Gates lost on his third move when he posts his Bishop behind the king pawn.
Chess is not meaningful thinking.
Right, it's not a blunder, but it's much harder to put up a good fight than, say, Bc4.
Chess has a finite, known quantity of moves that can be brute forced by a fast enough machine to evaluate all possible moves to end game.
I defy any patzer here to honestly say that they wouldn't have fallen for the same trap with TV lights glaring and less than two minutes for all your moves, sitting opposite the world champion.
