Four-fifths for first place

Mary: You ought to try wagering between $601 and $16,000. This will top a $0 wager by Nan while still beating David and Nan on the Triple Stumper (should David wager to cover Nan's doubled score and Nan wager to cover your doubled score).

Nan: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Mary, hoping that you give the correct response and David doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $16,601 to cover Mary's doubled score, but no more than $17,000 if you want to top David on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $599 and win if both David and Mary miss Final.

David: Wager $17,401 to cover Nan.
