Is Making 6N Better Than Making 7N?

Playing at the Bethlehem Bridge Club with Frank Kuebler November 20, 2017, I was North in 6N. It’s 100% on the diamond lead if you’re careful. You can’t go to the board with the Heart Ace to take the club finesse because if it loses you lose a club and a heart (although as the cards lie you’d make 7N here). You can’t even lay down the Club Ace , lest an opponent with four Clubs holds up and cuts your communications (although as the cards lie you’d make 7N here). The guaranteed line is to lose a club and keep the Ace to access the spades in hand.
