Four-fifths for first place

Steve: If you think Jerry is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,600 to beat Bruce and Jerry on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Jerry is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $1,801 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Jerry) and $5,200 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Jerry: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Steve, hoping that you give the correct response and Bruce doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,401 to cover Steve's doubled score, but no more than $6,800 if you want to top Bruce on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,799 and win if both Bruce and Steve miss Final.

Bruce: Wager $6,901 to cover Jerry.
