Four-fifths for first place

Lissa: Think about risking $1,800 or less, thereby beating Carl on the Triple Stumper (should Carl wager to cover Jim's doubled score). If you also want to beat Jim on the Triple Stumper, should Jim choose to attempt to cover your doubled score, then wager nothing.

Jim: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Lissa, hoping that you give the correct response and Carl doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,001 to cover Lissa's doubled score, but no more than $3,800 if you want to top Carl on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,999 and win if both Carl and Lissa miss Final.

Carl: Wager $4,901 to cover Jim.
