West leads the K, plan the play.

Many declarers played too quick to trick one and won the A and discarded a club. Now the hand can't be made.

Visualize the opponent’s hands. East has only 1 spade and likely the A. This means you should trump the heart lead and draw trumps. Now cash the AK and sure enough East shows out. Now simply lead a club to dummy. East will win the Ace but then have to put you into dummy with either a heart or a club and now you have your two discards to get rid of your spade losers.
