Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.

Four-fifths (exactly) for first place

Betsy: Think about risking $900, thereby tying Trevor on the Triple Stumper (should Trevor wager to cover Jake's doubled score).

Jake: You need to wager $1,801 to cover Betsy's doubled score, but certainly no more than $3,099, so as to force Betsy to be right to have a chance at winning.

Trevor: Wager $6,000, but no more than that: you cannot afford to lose by $1 to a likely wager of $4,000 on the part of Jake.
