North needs the remaining 5 tricks.  North transfers control to South leading the CJ, covered by East's CQ and ruffed by South's S9.  South then cashes the SQ and SJ, squeezing West out of D8 and D10.  Carefully watching West, Declarer follows by pitching  the HJ and HK from Dummy North, setting up dummy's DK and D7.
