Four-fifths for first place

Jerald: You ought to try wagering between $2,001 and $7,600. This will top a $0 wager by Mark while still beating John and Mark on the Triple Stumper (should John wager to cover Mark's doubled score and Mark wager to cover your doubled score).

Mark: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jerald, hoping that you give the correct response and John doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $9,601 to cover Jerald's doubled score, but no more than $10,800 if you want to top John on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,999 and win if both John and Jerald miss Final.

John: Wager $12,201 to cover Mark.
