Four-fifths for first place

Michael: If you think Fred is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,206 to beat Tom and Fred on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Fred is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,398 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Fred) and $6,000 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Fred: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Michael, hoping that you give the correct response and Tom doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,604 to cover Michael's doubled score, but no more than $6,991 if you want to top Tom on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,396 and win if both Tom and Michael miss Final.

Tom: Wager $7,695 to cover Fred.
