Four-fifths for first place

Nina: You ought to try wagering between $1,301 and $2,400. This will top a $0 wager by Jim while still beating Mary and Jim on the Triple Stumper (should Mary wager to cover Jim's doubled score and Jim wager to cover your doubled score).

Jim: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Nina, hoping that you give the correct response and Mary doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,701 to cover Nina's doubled score, but no more than $6,100 if you want to top Mary on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,299 and win if both Mary and Nina miss Final.

Mary: Wager $6,201 to cover Jim.
