Four-fifths for first place

Val: You ought to try wagering between $1,801 and $2,400. This will top a $0 wager by Jim while still beating Todd and Jim on the Triple Stumper (should Todd wager to cover Jim's doubled score and Jim wager to cover your doubled score).

Jim: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Val, hoping that you give the correct response and Todd doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,201 to cover Val's doubled score, but no more than $7,200 if you want to top Todd on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,799 and win if both Todd and Val miss Final.

Todd: Wager $7,501 to cover Jim.
