A Gem from Today's Cayne Match

Earlier today while waiting for my partner to log into BBO I decided to kibitz one of the regular JEC team matches and this lovely hand arose:

North
983
A95
9752
A72
South
AKQJ10765
K64
K10

There are 12 easy top tricks; your task is to find number 13. (Somewhat surprisingly, the other table only reached 5 spades.)

Follow along with me on the play of the first several tricks (I deviated ever so slightly from the actual play but the gist is the same):

T1: T-2-A-T

T2: 5-2-8-6

T3: 5-8-J-4

T4: 6-4-9-J

T5: 9-Q-Q-8

And here is where we currently stand:

North
3
A95
7
A72
South
AK7
K64
K10
W
N
E
S
5

P

At roughly this point in the hand, the declarer at the table thought for a long while before proceeding.

Now you are in the hot seat; can you take the rest of the tricks? Good luck!
