Your Plan

Count your winners: 0 in spades 3 in hearts 1-2 in diamonds and 7 in clubs, need to be care otherwise you may lose control in some suits before establishing more winners in spades.

The Play

A heart lead, win it and play a spade higher than 10, a heart return win this and lead a second high spade, with the 3rd heart return you can win it and you have established the rest of your spades as winners. Play them discarding the diamonds in dummy, play AC, KC crossing to the QC run the rest of your clubs
