Strong form of Shore's Conjecture

Joe: Anticipating that Cindy will wager for the tie rather than to cover by $1, and that Jim will wager everything, you should bet nothing, and you will tie for the win on the Triple Stumper.

Jim: Risk all $4,700 for the win or tie if you give the correct response (and provided Cindy doesn't wager to cover by $1).

Cindy: Wager $3,800--wagering any more risks falling behind Joe's wager of $0. If you feel like using Shoretegy, try wagering $201.
