Four-fifths for first place

Weak form of Shore's Conjecture

Mary Beth: Too bad for you, Mary Beth, your score is less than Laura's score minus Victor's score. Unless they both commit an egregious wagering error, you've no hope of moving into first place. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

Victor: Since you're within 4/5ths of Laura's score, you should wager between $2,401 (venusian) and $6,400 (martian), beating Laura's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores.

Laura: Wager $7,601 to cover Victor, but no more than $7,999 so as not to fall behind Mary Beth's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $5,601.
