Q
 

South needs 3 tricks, leading the CQ which squeezes West in Spades and Diamonds.  If West discards the DQ, South cashes the SK and then throws West in the lead with the D8

West is endplayed in Spades.  If West instead pitched the S4, South would overtake the SK with the SA and also win the SJ.
