Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.
John: You ought to try wagering between $1,501 and $2,300. This will top a $0 wager by Tom while still beating Stephen and Tom on the Triple Stumper (should Stephen wager to cover Tom's doubled score and Tom wager to cover your doubled score).
Tom: You ought to wager to cover John, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you ought to choose between wagering $0 or maximizing your winnings with a bet of all $7,200. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $4,200 (to shut out John) or less than $3,800 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by John). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Stephen.
Stephen: Wager $5,501 to cover Tom.
