Four-fifths for first place

Kate: If you think Ron is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,200 to beat Marty and Ron on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Ron is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $1,401 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Ron) and $4,000 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Ron: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Kate, hoping that you give the correct response and Marty doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,601 to cover Kate's doubled score, but no more than $5,000 if you want to top Marty on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,399 and win if both Marty and Kate miss Final.

Marty: Wager $5,201 to cover Ron.
