Four-fifths for first place

Sue: You ought to try wagering between $3,601 and $6,200. This will top a $0 wager by John while still beating Michael and John on the Triple Stumper (should Michael wager to cover John's doubled score and John wager to cover your doubled score).

John: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Sue, hoping that you give the correct response and Michael doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $9,801 to cover Sue's doubled score, but no more than $13,000 if you want to top Michael on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,599 and win if both Michael and Sue miss Final.

Michael: Wager $15,001 to cover John.
