Another Everything-Is-Okay Block (This Is Not A Repeat)

The following hand is from the Terence Reese book 'The Most Puzzling Situations in Bridge'. We should all be familiar with the technique by now - from here and two more here.

West leads the K against your 6. You have 11 tricks if the spades are breaking and a heart ruff will see you home. What if the spades are not breaking? Then you will have to bank on the ruffing finesse in clubs. To keep yor options open, draw trumps and play K♠ then A♠. You have 4♠+1+5+1♣ + 1 ruff = 12 tricks.
