Four-fifths for first place

Mike: If you think Matt is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $600 to beat Kathleen and Matt on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Matt is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $4,001 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Matt) and $8,600 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Matt: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Mike, hoping that you give the correct response and Kathleen doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,601 to cover Mike's doubled score, but no more than $12,200 if you want to top Kathleen on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,999 and win if both Kathleen and Mike miss Final.

Kathleen: Wager $12,401 to cover Matt.
