Four-fifths for first place

Paul: If you think Sarah is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $1,000 to beat Kate and Sarah on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Sarah is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,401 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Sarah) and $5,800 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Sarah: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Paul, hoping that you give the correct response and Kate doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,401 to cover Paul's doubled score, but no more than $5,800 if you want to top Kate on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,399 and win if both Kate and Paul miss Final.

Kate: Wager $7,001 to cover Sarah.
