Four-fifths for first place

Shelley: You ought to try wagering between $2,801 and $3,400. This will top a $0 wager by Jim while still beating Brian and Jim on the Triple Stumper (should Brian wager to cover Jim's doubled score and Jim wager to cover your doubled score).

Jim: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Shelley, hoping that you give the correct response and Brian doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $6,201 to cover Shelley's doubled score, but no more than $7,800 if you want to top Brian on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,799 and win if both Brian and Shelley miss Final.

Brian: Wager $9,801 to cover Jim.
