You are not reading the problem carefully. Reread first 4 tricks and which cards are played before you make a suggestion please.Posted Image

East did not lead a heart first round, so maybe he is void and West started with a poor 7 card heart suit. If East had one heart and it was the K I think he would have led it, so I reckon West has the K. If West has 7 hearts then he has at most four clubs.
Win with the A, cross to the A and play the K. If East shows out then ruff a third club, ruff a heart and run out the clubs.

North is declarer, and East bid 2. Unless East has made a massive psych, East is not void in hearts. Also, the 8 is still out.

Got my Easts and Wests mixed up, and I had just got up (UK time)! Try again.
East definitely has the K - I can see seven hearts and he has the remaining six for his opening bid.
Win the A. Ruff a heart. Play A and K, and assuming that the clubs split 3-2 I am home dry.
I think I can deal with a 4-1 club break:
If West ruffs K I overruff, back to A and run the clubs.
If East ruffs K and leads back K I ruff in hand and run the clubs - when West plays his J I ruff it, return to hand with the and run the clubs.
If East ruffs K and plays a diamond I ruff in dummy and then back to A and run the clubs.

I can handle a 5-0 club break unless West is void in clubs and has the outstanding spade.
If East is void and ruffs the K then when I get back in I run the 1098 and overruff West's , return to hand with A or a heart ruff and run the remaining clubs.
If West is void and East has the outstanding spade I can let East win the J and win the reurn, taking out the last spade and making 5 clubs, A, A, a heart ruff and three further spades.


Any better?

I think you need some strong coffee. There are two problems with that sentence.
