Four-fifths (exactly) for first place

Weak form of Shore's Conjecture

Kathy: Too bad for you, Kathy, your score is less than Rachel's score minus Jonathan's score. Unless they both commit an egregious wagering error, you've no hope of moving into first place. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

Jonathan: Your score is exactly 4/5ths of Rachel's score, so wager $3,600. If Rachel wagers properly, you'll tie each other should you both get Final wrong, and if Rachel makes the mistake of overwagering, you'll win the stumper.

Rachel: Wager $5,400, but no more than that: you cannot afford to lose by $1 to a likely wager of $3,600 on the part of Jonathan. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $4,601.
