The Entire Deal

Gino's Suggestion and a Short Explanation

The plan: Establish clubs by ruffing in the dummy. Then draw the trump. Win with the ♣A. Ruff a club. Draw trump.

To make 11 tricks you hope for a 3-2 spade break and a 4-3 club break. Note that you lack the transportation to ruff 2 rounds of clubs in the dummy.
