Four-fifths for first place

Mona: If you think Paul is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,200 to beat Joshua and Paul on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Paul is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $3,001 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Paul) and $7,200 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Paul: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Mona, hoping that you give the correct response and Joshua doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,201 to cover Mona's doubled score, but no more than $6,800 if you want to top Joshua on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,999 and win if both Joshua and Mona miss Final.

Joshua: Wager $8,501 to cover Paul.
