I can see where he got that from, but I don't agree.
What if "Legal problems" is totally incorrect for the person having the reading done, but the Ten Cups is appropriate for their emotions, the Ten Pentacles is appropriate for their finances, and the Ten Wands is appropriate for their workload since their business partner went on a three-month holiday? Should the deck somehow throw you three less appropriate cards, so that you don't mistake their individual meanings for "legal problems"?
I read each card as it comes. I generally only combine cards if they are screaming at me to be combined, and when that happens, it is vanishingly rare indeed that the cards screaming to be interpreted together are actually the same numeric value.
