Twin-Entry Compound Squeeze

[ Home | Catalogue | Compound Squeeze Index ]

In the twin-entry compound squeeze, the double threats are split between the two hands, and one of the double threats is a twin-entry threat, the equivalent of Axx opposite Kx; the last free winner lies in the same hand as the twin-entry threat, and both other threats lie in the opposite hand. There must be an extra entry to this hand, which can be either a winner or a ruff in either of the threat suits held in the opposite hand. This gives 4 basic positions, and each has two variants, depending on the location of the second last free winner. All these endings are restricted:

Both free winners in same hand
