Four-fifths for first place

Bob: You ought to try wagering between $901 and $3,700. This will top a $0 wager by Wayland while still beating Jerry and Wayland on the Triple Stumper (should Jerry wager to cover Wayland's doubled score and Wayland wager to cover your doubled score).

Wayland: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Bob, hoping that you give the correct response and Jerry doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,601 to cover Bob's doubled score, but no more than $5,600 if you want to top Jerry on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $899 and win if both Jerry and Bob miss Final.

Jerry: Wager $6,001 to cover Wayland.
