Four-fifths for first place

Jim: You ought to try wagering between $1,401 and $1,900. This will top a $0 wager by Carol while still beating Ali and Carol on the Triple Stumper (should Ali wager to cover Carol's doubled score and Carol wager to cover your doubled score).

Carol: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jim, hoping that you give the correct response and Ali doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,301 to cover Jim's doubled score, but no more than $4,500 if you want to top Ali on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,399 and win if both Ali and Jim miss Final.

Ali: Wager $5,301 to cover Carol.
