Competition Problem #1

South to make three spades. West leads the J.

I think this is possibly the most difficult problem I have ever composed, though I have to admit that the idea was mostly DeepFinesse's!  It started life as a random deal in which I found some interesting points in DF's analysis.  If you send me a correct solution you will certainly be awarded the maximum 8 DD Master Points (and therefore 2 Star Points).  I assume that solutions are arrived at without the aid of computer programs like DeepFinesse.
