Four-fifths for first place

Jim: You ought to try wagering between $3,401 and $4,800. This will top a $0 wager by Erin while still beating John and Erin on the Triple Stumper (should John wager to cover Erin's doubled score and Erin wager to cover your doubled score).

Erin: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jim, hoping that you give the correct response and John doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $8,201 to cover Jim's doubled score, but no more than $13,000 if you want to top John on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,399 and win if both John and Jim miss Final.

John: Wager $14,001 to cover Erin.
