Four-fifths for first place

Jay: If you think Phil is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $300 to beat Randy and Phil on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Phil is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $3,001 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Phil) and $6,300 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Phil: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jay, hoping that you give the correct response and Randy doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,301 to cover Jay's doubled score, but no more than $8,700 if you want to top Randy on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,999 and win if both Randy and Jay miss Final.

Randy: Wager $9,001 to cover Phil.
