Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.

Crush for first place

Denise: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

J.P.: You have the hope of surpassing Judith if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $2,101 to force Judith to wager to win; but if you're intent on holding on to second place, wager no more than $499 to protect your second place position from being usurped by Denise.

Judith: Wager $1,201 to cover J.P., but no more than $2,599 so as not to fall behind Denise's doubled score.
