Strong form of Shore's Conjecture

Phil: Anticipating that Amy will wager for the tie rather than to cover by $1, and that Dylan will wager everything, you should bet nothing, and you will tie for the win on the Triple Stumper.

Dylan: Risk all $4,200 for the win or tie if you give the correct response (and provided Amy doesn't wager to cover by $1).

Amy: Wager $3,600--wagering any more risks falling behind Phil's wager of $0. If you feel like using Shoretegy, try wagering $1,201.
