Four-fifths for first place

Barb: You ought to try wagering between $2,401 and $3,400. This will top a $0 wager by Joel while still beating Jody and Joel on the Triple Stumper (should Jody wager to cover Joel's doubled score and Joel wager to cover your doubled score).

Joel: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Barb, hoping that you give the correct response and Jody doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $5,801 to cover Barb's doubled score, but no more than $9,800 if you want to top Jody on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,399 and win if both Jody and Barb miss Final.

Jody: Wager $10,201 to cover Joel.
