Four-fifths for first place

Eric: If you think John is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $600 to beat Phoebe and John on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think John is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,601 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by John) and $5,800 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

John: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Eric, hoping that you give the correct response and Phoebe doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,201 to cover Eric's doubled score, but no more than $8,000 if you want to top Phoebe on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,599 and win if both Phoebe and Eric miss Final.

Phoebe: Wager $8,201 to cover John.
