Check the cRc website. They allow a chazakah check for most things. That's for their personal guide. I don't know if they have different standards for what they actually certify.

What's the makor for large kitchens only checking 3 pieces of lettuce and relying on a chazaka that the rest of the pieces have no bugs?
Rabbi Heinemann says that this is what Rav Aharon did. The Primary source IIRC s from Rav Shlomo Kluger in tshuvos. I don't think that 3 leaves would do the trick though.

I don't see how they can be compared.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I can definitely be wrong

How would it help to check three eggs? Blood spots are anyway miut sheiyno motzui and the reason to check is since you are cracking it anyway, not to check is like maalim ayin min haisur.

chazakah check ≠ 3 leaves
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

It would be for every tefila. The question is if he needs to change his schedule to get every tefila. Most important is mariv motzei shabbos then weekday mariv. There is definitely no obligation to change shuls for it (besides that he doesn't have kedima for the amud in a shul other than his regular one and would only get it if there is no one else with any level of chiyuv at all-even during shiva). It is important to note that the bigger zchus for the niftar is davining for the amud over kaddish, which was only instituted for children and others who can't daven for the amud.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Why is this ?

You see during shiva siblings taking turns davening. Shouldn’t they be trying to get minyan for each one ?

Motzei Shabbos is because that is when neshamos go back to gehinom (RMA YD 376:4) daily mariv because midas hadin is more powerful at night (KSA)
Regarding siblings during shiva there is no obligation to make extra minyanim. I just saw this yesterday but don't remember exactly where. I will try to check this up.

I specifically remember as kid not only my Dad davening Motzei Shabbos before a yahrzeit (even if it wasn't bo bayom), but that our shul would split into multiple minyanim if more than one person had a yahrzeit that upcoming week. (regardless of how many chiyuvim there may have been).

It would be for every tefila. The question is if he needs to change his schedule to get every tefila. Most important is mariv motzei shabbos then weekday mariv.

It is important to note that the bigger zchus for the niftar is davining for the amud over kaddish, which was only instituted for children and others who can't daven for the amud.

I've also been told that learning (specifically mishnayos, because mishna and nehsama are anagrams) are also more important than kaddish.

As for Shiva and siblings - I am assuming that leading tefila is a zchus of the deceased. Therefore if one brother or the other has the amud, their relative is getting proper zchusim. (my assumption).

There is a minhag to daven for the amud on motzei shabbos before the yahtzeit. Splitting into smaller minyanim is not simple.

The KSA says that the biggest zchus is to teach descendants to continue biderech hashem.

Can you elaborate why it's not so simple? Whatever the issues, I imagine there are shittos that permit it, considering I've seen it regularly in a few places.
