Four-fifths for first place

Strong form of Shore's Conjecture

Jim: There's no way you can cover a rational wager by Kevin, but if Kevin decides for some reason to wager everything, you can eke out a win on a Triple Stumper if you wager no more than $1,600.

Kevin: Your score is within 4/5ths of Ellen's, so wager between $201 (venusian) and $7,199 (martian), beating Ellen's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores while still covering against a doubled score on Jim's part.

Ellen: Wager $10,701 to cover Kevin. If you feel like using Shoretegy, try wagering $7,101.
