Adam Hui raised to 65,000 before the flop and was called by Mark Sykes and Ramy Ibrahim. The flop came down [Jd][Td][9s] and Hui fired 110,000. Sykes folded but Ibrahim made the call.
The turn was the [5c] and Hui checked. Ibrahim then bet out 250,000 and Hui moved all in. Ibrahim snapped called him and they turned up:
Hui had flopped two pair but was behind Ibrahim's flopped straight. When a nine hit on the river, Ibrahim looked as if he had lost the tournament and Hui clearly was excited to make his full house.
However, what neither one of them noticed at first was that it wasn't just any nine that fell on the river, it was the [9d], giving Ibrahim a straight flush to king and sending Hui to the rail in 15th place.

After the player in the seven seat raised to 55,000 before the flop, Rob Brown reraised to 168,000. Seat Seven thought for a bit and then made the call. The flop came [8c][8d][7d] and Brown fired out 180,000. The seven seat then moved all in for an additional 541,000.
Brown talked through the hand to try and get information out of his opponent. Finally, he announce call and showed [Ad][Qd] for two overs and the nut flush draw. Much to his surprise, his opponent flipped up [9h][8h] for trip eights. The turn was the [5h] and the river came the [7c], giving the seven seat a full house and the biggest pot of the tournament.
Rob Brown was left with under 400,000 in chips after the hand.

I don't even know where to begin with this...
James Woods lost a monster pot with [As][5c] vs.[Td][Th] that he thought eliminated him from the tournament. Instead, it left him with three 1,000 chips.
With antes at 1,000, he folded the next hand. The next hand he threw in his ante and was left with one orange and, after Mike Sica raised to 20,000, he tossed it in. Sica had [Ac][Jc] to Woods' [As][8c]. The board came [7s][5d][4d][3s][8h] and Woods nailed the river to stay alive.
Now with 13,000, he moved all in with [Ah][5s] and was called by an opponent holding [Ac][As]. This time, the board ran out [7c][2s][4c][5h][3d] and Woods managed a huge chop.
The next hand he was all in again with [Kd][2d] vs. [2h][2s] and managed to hit a king on the flop despite the fact that another player stated that they folded a king.
After a big raise from Adam Hui, Woods moved all in again with [Kd][Qh]. Hui made the call and turned up [Qd][Qs]. Yet again, James Woods hit a king on the flop to stay alive.
From a single 1,000 chip, the legendary James Woods now sits on over 140,000.

After two players limped in, Matt Kleckner moved all in for 164,000 before the flop with pocket tens. He got one caller in the for of A-Q. Kleckner was ahead but his opponent drilled an ace on the flop to eliminate him from the tournament.

Rob "veeRob" Perelman
After a raise to 12,000 and a call by another opponent, Rob Perelman moved all in from from the button for 127,000. After thinking for a few minutes, the original raiser moved all in on top and the other opponent folded. They turned up:
The board ran out [Kc][Ks][8h][Kh][4d] and the dealer had to do a count to see who had more chips. In the end, veeRob was slightly outchipped by his opponent and eliminated from the Foxwoods Mega Stack Main Event.
