Three talaaqs:
Please note that giving three divorces in one sitting verbally or in writing, is prohibited in Shari'ah, notwithstanding all three will become effective.

It is reported from Mahmood Ibn Labid that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was informed of a person who had given his wife three divorces at
once. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) stood up in the state of
anger and said, 'Are you playing with the Aayats of Allah and His Kitaab whilst I am among you.' A person stood up and said, 'Oh Rasulullah! Should I not kill him?' (Mishkaat Vol2 p.284)

Three Talaaqs in one sitting

And Allah knows Best
