Jack-high Straight Gets Crushed by Two Queen-high Straights

On Table 8, the player known as "Walter" is now down to a short stack after he was hurt badly in an exchange with two other players.

With all the money going in on the turn with the board showing {6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, Walter tabled {j-?}{7-?} for the jack-high straight.

However, the other two players in the pot both showed {j-?}{q-?} for higher straights.

The two, August Martinez and Jay Santiago, split the pot while Walter's stack is now severely crippled.
