Four-fifths for first place

Keith: If you think Holly is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,500 to beat Cathy and Holly on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Holly is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,901 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Holly) and $7,300 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Holly: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Keith, hoping that you give the correct response and Cathy doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,401 to cover Keith's doubled score, but no more than $6,800 if you want to top Cathy on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,899 and win if both Cathy and Keith miss Final.

Cathy: Wager $8,501 to cover Holly.
