Without a defensive blunder, the only chance is to play SK, SA and ruff a spade, hoping SQJ drop in three rounds.
This is likely not to happen, and you can raise the chances of a defensive blunder with a pseudo-squeeze. Run 6 rounds of trumps before touching the side-suits, hoping that the defender with 4 spades also has honours in hearts and clubs and guesses the wrong suit to keep. Then, SK, SA, spade ruff with dummy's last trump, cash HK and get back to your spade winner with HA.

All in all, a great example of the risks of Blackwood.
