Hi Dear Mr Wolff
Perhaps an apt case to be a Doubledummy problem and solving such problems at table provide sheer delight and a sense of accomplishment

In addition to your ultra consistent and accurate bridge analyst, you understand what really counts, in being adept at our off-the-charts great game.

And likely, similar to Chess, no doubt, that delight and sense of accomplishment, will always become a sensational feeling for those who solve those puzzles and arrange what amounts to a checkmate in bridge.

Furthermore, whether it happens more or less often in bridge, my guess is that it probably brings more delight in bridge, since seemingly Chess is confined and thrives on that opportunity from the get-go, while to so similarly accomplish it in bridge may be like finding a needle in a haystack, and only available in so many different, and very difficult to find, varieties.

Thank you for your sheer love of the game, to which I hope, is contagious and rubs off on those capable of pulling them off, as well as FIE on those who take the very low road of questionable table ethics or worse!
