GIB declares a hand well, part II

From yesterday:

Q 8 3
Q 5 2
A K J 10 5 2
A K 6 5 4
A 9 2
A 10 7
6 4

Declare 6♠ after a heart lead.

GIB played ♠A, ♣A, ♣K, and ruffed a club high (when RHO followed with ♣Q), then ♠Q and running clubs left the defense with nothing to win but a top trump.

Doesn't seem that complicated or hard to find, it was just something that wouldn't have occurred to me promptly. Like I said yesterday, the technique seems more common in tricky partials than in slams.
