Four-fifths for first place

Justin: If you think Mike is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $600 to beat Jeff and Mike on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Mike is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $1,501 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Mike) and $3,600 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Mike: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Justin, hoping that you give the correct response and Jeff doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,101 to cover Justin's doubled score, but no more than $4,500 if you want to top Jeff on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,499 and win if both Jeff and Justin miss Final.

Jeff: Wager $4,801 to cover Mike.
