Four-fifths for first place

Ted: You ought to try wagering between $3,401 and $5,600. This will top a $0 wager by Paul while still beating Ellen and Paul on the Triple Stumper (should Ellen wager to cover Paul's doubled score and Paul wager to cover your doubled score).

Paul: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Ted, hoping that you give the correct response and Ellen doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $9,001 to cover Ted's doubled score, but no more than $10,200 if you want to top Ellen on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $3,399 and win if both Ellen and Ted miss Final.

Ellen: Wager $13,001 to cover Paul.
