Clash Squeeze

A clash squeeze is a triple squeeze against one opponent, although one of his stoppers is not the ordinary kind but the only outstanding card between your winner and its communication card; hence if discarded, your communication card becomes a separate winner. In practice this almost always occurs as a double clash squeeze, where the clash threat overcomes a defective double squeeze or pure squeeze. For further details see Non-Pure Squeezes.
