Four-fifths for first place

David: You ought to try wagering between $1,601 and $1,700. This will top a $0 wager by Doug while still beating Lyn and Doug on the Triple Stumper (should Lyn wager to cover Doug's doubled score and Doug wager to cover your doubled score).

Doug: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover David, hoping that you give the correct response and Lyn doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,301 to cover David's doubled score, but no more than $3,500 if you want to top Lyn on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,599 and win if both Lyn and David miss Final.

Lyn: Wager $5,001 to cover Doug.
