This is not a split pot. The opp had AAAK6 while your hand is AAAK5. The 6 outkicks the 5, so they win.

For the king to play as a kicker for a split there would also have needed to be another card higher than both the villains 6 and your 5 on the board.
The relevant showdown hands in this instance were:
hero: AAAK5
Villain:AAAK6

If either the 2 or 3 had been a 7 for example then you would have both played the K and 7 for AAAK7 then it would have been a split.
