Four-fifths for first place

Jonah: If you think Maryann is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $100 to beat Alan and Maryann on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Maryann is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $3,901 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Maryann) and $7,900 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Maryann: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jonah, hoping that you give the correct response and Alan doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,001 to cover Jonah's doubled score, but no more than $8,600 if you want to top Alan on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,899 and win if both Alan and Jonah miss Final.

Alan: Wager $10,201 to cover Maryann.
