A loser-ruffing squeeze?

I'm sure someone will tell me what the correct name is.

Practicing on BBO, I came across this gem (sorry David Yates).

The play is as recorded. The first 6 tricks are straightforward.

At trick 7, declarer tried to cash the K (which should be ruffed). Ignore that -- declarer can succeed by trying to ruff low clubs instead. What can West do?

- Ruff air

- Get overruffed

- Get squeezed in the red suits (can survive this round by pitching a heart ... but what about the next?
