Two-thirds for first place

Weak form of Shore's Conjecture

Phil: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

Nan: You'll want to wager between $0 (venusian) and $200 (martian), and you'll win the game if Erica wagers enough and gets it wrong.

Erica: Wager $4,801 to cover Nan, but no more than $11,999 so as not to fall behind Phil's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $2,801.
