Four-fifths for first place

Jim: If you think Anne is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,100 to beat Ellen and Anne on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Anne is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $1,801 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Anne) and $4,700 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Anne: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jim, hoping that you give the correct response and Ellen doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,901 to cover Jim's doubled score, but no more than $3,700 if you want to top Ellen on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,799 and win if both Ellen and Jim miss Final.

Ellen: Wager $5,101 to cover Anne.
