I've no idea what the right single dummy line is on a spade lead, but I'll observe that I don't know anyone who made it.

But have a think about how to make it double dummy.  The general idea is easy - you can see quite quickly that one threat is to play three rounds of hearts early and endplay East - but that isn't quite good enough.

I needed to use a DD solver to work this through, but if you like this sort of problem it's worthy of analysis.
