Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.

Four-fifths for first place

Liz: You ought to try wagering between $1,201 and $9,000. This will top a $0 wager by Chris while still beating Jim and Chris on the Triple Stumper (should Jim wager to cover Chris's doubled score and Chris wager to cover your doubled score).

Chris: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Liz, hoping that you give the correct response and Jim doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $10,201 to cover Liz's doubled score, but no more than $12,000 if you want to top Jim on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,199 and win if both Jim and Liz miss Final.

Jim: Wager $12,301 to cover Chris.
