Four-fifths for first place

Kate: If you think Kyle is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $600 to beat Leslie and Kyle on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Kyle is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,701 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Kyle) and $6,000 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Kyle: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Kate, hoping that you give the correct response and Leslie doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,301 to cover Kate's doubled score, but no more than $5,700 if you want to top Leslie on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,699 and win if both Leslie and Kate miss Final.

Leslie: Wager $7,201 to cover Kyle.
