In order to make this contract the Bridge Gods need to be with you and your 50% finesses  will need hopefully need to be 100%

When my esteemed partner played this hand he held up the first two round of Hearts and then processed to test the Clubs first, cashing the Ace. Next he took a successful Diamond finesse with West covering the 10 with his Jack. Next he took a successful club finesse .

Now he was very careful to cash the Spade king before it blocked him and the proceeded to cash hs clubs ending in hand where he could take his 9th trick with the Spade King.

He made with due care and attention 2 Spades, 1 Hearts 2 Diamonds and 4 clubs with both Minor suit finesses working.

 

You can also play out the following hand  to see how the hand pans out. (You need bridgvu.exe programme  and it is available free from   http://www.haroldschogger.videoes.html or BridgeBase programme on your machine already to view it )
