Four-fifths for first place

Brian: You ought to try wagering between $2,201 and $9,200. This will top a $0 wager by Linda while still beating Tim and Linda on the Triple Stumper (should Tim wager to cover Linda's doubled score and Linda wager to cover your doubled score).

Linda: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Brian, hoping that you give the correct response and Tim doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $11,401 to cover Brian's doubled score, but no more than $15,000 if you want to top Tim on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,199 and win if both Tim and Brian miss Final.

Tim: Wager $15,401 to cover Linda.
