In this scenario, the board plays for everyone, that is, if each person separately took their hole cards and combined them with the board, then the best 5-card hand that each person could make is 2 pair (9's and 2's) with a queen kicker.

Therefore, the pot is split 3 ways.

Thank you for the clarification..if in hand of any player would have been A or K then that person would have won.. – Amir Khan Jun 6 '14 at 15:03
Correct, since they would have a better kicker. – splungebob Jun 6 '14 at 15:04
In the beginning it's maybe hard to understand. If you for example have QQ and your opponent has 72 and board shows AAAAK its still a split pot and nothing else ;) even though your hand is 10 times better than your oppponents one. – RayofCommand Jun 10 '14 at 9:04
