Four-fifths for first place

Jamie: If you think Brandon is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $800 to beat Dave and Brandon on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Brandon is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,601 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Brandon) and $6,000 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Brandon: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jamie, hoping that you give the correct response and Dave doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,401 to cover Jamie's doubled score, but no more than $6,200 if you want to top Dave on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,599 and win if both Dave and Jamie miss Final.

Dave: Wager $7,401 to cover Brandon.
