Zia's 5 was looking for good trumps.  Hamman felt compelled to cuebid 6 because he knew his 2 top trump honors plus all of his aces could potentially be enough for 7.  At that point the rails fell off because Zia passed.  6 went two down and in the other room they bid and made 6.  14 imps back to Fleisher.
