Four-fifths for first place

Intermediate form of Shore's Conjecture

Bill: You just can't cover a rational wager by Jack, nor can you win on a Triple Stumper. Improve your situation by wagering everything but a few bucks--and then getting Final right!

Jack: Your score is within 4/5ths of Jerry's, so wager between $2,601 (venusian) and $3,899 (martian), beating Jerry's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores while still covering against a doubled score on Bill's part.

Jerry: Wager $7,601 to cover Jack. Or, you could try out a Shoretegic bet of $2,601.
