Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.

Four-fifths for first place

Paul: You ought to try wagering between $801 and $2,800. This will top a $0 wager by Marvin while still beating Kathleen and Marvin on the Triple Stumper (should Kathleen wager to cover Marvin's doubled score and Marvin wager to cover your doubled score).

Marvin: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Paul, hoping that you give the correct response and Kathleen doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,601 to cover Paul's doubled score, but no more than $5,000 if you want to top Kathleen on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $799 and win if both Kathleen and Paul miss Final.

Kathleen: Wager $5,101 to cover Marvin.
