Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.

Four-fifths for first place

Matt: You ought to try wagering between $3,201 and $3,400. This will top a $0 wager by Lisa while still beating Jill and Lisa on the Triple Stumper (should Jill wager to cover Lisa's doubled score and Lisa wager to cover your doubled score).

Lisa: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Matt, hoping that you give the correct response and Jill doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $6,601 to cover Matt's doubled score, but no more than $12,600 if you want to top Jill on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,199 and win if both Jill and Matt miss Final.

Jill: Wager $12,801 to cover Lisa.
