If you ever get a 3 piece anchor where all 3 pieces can be attached with a "cluster F-O-lette" then its a miracle. In practice one can generally get 2 pieces close enough together to make a shallow angle. 3? I think I have managed this exactly once in my life.

There is no need for 3 unless you are climbing on shitty rock, in which case the 3rd is nothing but psychological pro.
PS. Your first picture is 2 piece equalized. Not exactly a three piece equalization...
