Do not misplay this slam (like I did ....)

I found the following slam hand quite interesting. See if you can find the right plan (which unfortunately I did not find at the table .... Frown).

Matchpoints, strong opponents. Lead was 3 (3rd and 5th leads) and if you play the Jack from dummy West will play the 9 showing an even number of cards (true, West could be witholding the K but that would be quite a play to find).

Since most interesting variations occur when trumps are 2-2 I confirm that in fact trumps broke 2-2 ...

 I will post the full hand later, but surely someone will provide what seems to be the best play; I do not want to deprive you of the pleasure of finding the solution and a few hidden details.

Apologies if having put North as declarer makes it less readable; those were the actual positions.
