%hash<b> is short for %hash{<b>} which is short for %hash{qw<b>}
There is also %hash«b» / %hash<<b>> which is similarly short for %hash{«b»} / %hash{qqww«b»}

With that knowledge it should be easy to see why %hash<$somekey> would be the same as %hash{'$somekey'}.

use v6.c; my %hash = ( :a<A>, :b<B>, 'c d' => 'C~D', 'a b' => 'A~B', '$somekey' => '?' ); my $somekey = 'a b'; say %hash« $somekey 'c d' ».perl; # ("A", "B", "C~D") say %hash« '$somekey' ».perl; # "?" say %hash« "$somekey" ».perl; # "A~B" say %hash< $somekey >.perl; # "?"
