Four-fifths for first place

Scott: If you think Mark is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $900 to beat Ginny and Mark on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Mark is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $1,201 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Mark) and $3,300 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Mark: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Scott, hoping that you give the correct response and Ginny doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,101 to cover Scott's doubled score, but no more than $3,900 if you want to top Ginny on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,199 and win if both Ginny and Scott miss Final.

Ginny: Wager $4,201 to cover Mark.
