Double Dummy problem 6N

I enjoyed solving this one, and want to share it with the Bridge Winners community.  No doubt there will be spoilers in the comments, so if you like solving these, I suggest no peeking.

This board was shuffle and deal, and credit goes to Bill Bailey's Deep Finesse program, and to Will Watson, for revealing this problem.  Without the DF analysis on the hand record saying that 6N could be made (only by South, of course), it's likely this problem would have gone unnoticed.  And it definitely would have gone unnoticed without Will Watson's efforts to create hand records from our shuffle and deal GNT match.  He ran hands through a dealing machine after the match, not only for my team (which he was part of), but also for several other matches which included youth players!  Will is continually working to improve the tournament bridge experience.
