Four-fifths for first place

Derek: If you think Verlinda is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $3,000 to beat Julia and Verlinda on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Verlinda is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $4,001 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Verlinda) and $11,000 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Verlinda: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Derek, hoping that you give the correct response and Julia doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $7,001 to cover Derek's doubled score, but no more than $10,200 if you want to top Julia on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,999 and win if both Julia and Derek miss Final.

Julia: Wager $12,601 to cover Verlinda.
