Four-fifths for first place

Jim: If you think Penny is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $2,800 to beat Kristin and Penny on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Penny is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $3,201 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Penny) and $9,200 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Penny: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jim, hoping that you give the correct response and Kristin doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $6,001 to cover Jim's doubled score, but no more than $7,200 if you want to top Kristin on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,199 and win if both Kristin and Jim miss Final.

Kristin: Wager $9,801 to cover Penny.
