The Left Middle Player has a King of Diamonds and a 5 of Diamonds, so when he combines that with the Dealer's 8 of Diamonds he has a Flush and wins the 9-to-1 payout!
The Middle Player has a 6 of Diamonds and 7 of Diamonds, so when he combines that with the Dealer's 8 of Diamonds he has a Straight Flush and wins the 9-to-1 payout!
The Right Middle Player has an 8 of Clubs and 8 of Hearts, so when he combines that with the Dealer's 8 of Diamonds he has a Three-of-a-Kind and wins the 9-to-1 payout!
The Right Player has a Queen of Hearts and a 3 of Clubs, so when he combines that with the Dealer's 8 of Diamonds, he does not have anything and loses the side-bet he placed.
