Four-fifths for first place

Mary: If you think Mark is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $500 to beat Keith and Mark on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Mark is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,301 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Mark) and $5,100 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Mark: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Mary, hoping that you give the correct response and Keith doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,801 to cover Mary's doubled score, but no more than $7,000 if you want to top Keith on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,299 and win if both Keith and Mary miss Final.

Keith: Wager $7,201 to cover Mark.
