[6 of Spades]
It can't hurt to cash the ace of diamonds, ruff a diamond high at trick three, enter dummy with a trump and ruff another diamond at trick five. You can then overtake your last trump and play yet another trump (leaving one trump in dummy), discarding a heart from your hand.
All this will probably leave you with little or no additional distributional information, which means you must resort to your best percentage chance, which is playing the ace-king of hearts and if the queen does not fall, taking the club finesse. Happily, it does fall.
The general rule when missing two queens, either one of which you have to find to make your contract, is: play the ace-king of the longer suit, and if the queen has not dropped take a finesse in the shorter suit.
