Four-fifths for first place

Jan: If you think Geoff is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $2,200 to beat Osman and Geoff on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Geoff is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $3,801 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Geoff) and $9,800 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Geoff: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jan, hoping that you give the correct response and Osman doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $6,001 to cover Jan's doubled score, but no more than $13,000 if you want to top Osman on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,799 and win if both Osman and Jan miss Final.

Osman: Wager $13,301 to cover Geoff.
