Four-fifths for first place

John: Think about risking $1,900 or less, thereby beating Ben on the Triple Stumper (should Ben wager to cover Bob's doubled score). If you also want to beat Bob on the Triple Stumper, should Bob choose to attempt to cover your doubled score, then wager $900.

Bob: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover John, hoping that you give the correct response and Ben doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,601 to cover John's doubled score, but no more than $4,600 if you want to top Ben on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,699 and win if both Ben and John miss Final.

Ben: Wager $6,801 to cover Bob.
