This slam was no bargain, but the Nickell team needs imps and their aggression pays off.  The lead made it almost impossible that the K was onside (people dont typically underlead Kings against 6NT, though possible)  Zia went up Ace to find the first bit of good news.  After the diamond finesse was on he didnt have to worry about guessing the suit.  11 more to nickell who then picked up another 6 on the next hand.
