Prisoner's dilemma

Manny: If Fran and Carlos both wager all $12,300 and give incorrect responses, you'll wind up the winner so long as you don't bet more than $999. Since your score is less than half either of theirs (meaning you can't overtake them by wagering money) and your win is predicated on both of them getting Final wrong (meaning that, chances are, you won't get it right either), a wager of $0 seems wisest.

Carlos: Don't trust Fran? Then bet $12,300 and hope for an easy Final Jeopardy! clue.

Fran: Do you trust Carlos? Then bet $0.
