Four-fifths for first place

Strong form of Shore's Conjecture

Donna: There's no way you can cover a rational wager by Tom, but if Tom decides for some reason to wager everything, you can eke out a win on a Triple Stumper if you wager no more than $4,200.

Tom: Your score is within 4/5ths of John's, so wager between $201 (venusian) and $1,699 (martian), beating John's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores while still covering against a doubled score on Donna's part.

John: Wager $10,401 to cover Tom. If you feel like using Shoretegy, try wagering $1,601.
