Four-fifths for first place

Jim: You ought to try wagering between $901 and $4,500. This will top a $0 wager by Lynda while still beating Paul and Lynda on the Triple Stumper (should Paul wager to cover Lynda's doubled score and Lynda wager to cover your doubled score).

Lynda: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Jim, hoping that you give the correct response and Paul doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $5,401 to cover Jim's doubled score, but no more than $6,600 if you want to top Paul on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $899 and win if both Paul and Jim miss Final.

Paul: Wager $6,901 to cover Lynda.
