Compound Guard Squeeze - A triple suited squeeze, where two suits are stopped by both opponents.  While the defenders attempt to cooperatively each guard one suit, the declarer discards holding in the suit retained over the opponent (positioned as the Right Hand Opponent). Finally, declarer cashes tricks that squeeze the other opponent in the remaining retained suits.

South cashes two Spades, forcing opponents to each abandon one minor suit.  Let's say on the first Spade, West discards Diamonds and East discards the Club suit.  Accordingly, since West saved a winning Club, declarer discards a Club from dummy.  On the second Spade winner, East was further squeezed - whichever suit East discards, perhaps Hearts, will allow Declarer to win the further tricks in that suit.
