Four-fifths for first place

Alan: You ought to try wagering between $2,501 and $5,000. This will top a $0 wager by Susan while still beating Nathan and Susan on the Triple Stumper (should Nathan wager to cover Susan's doubled score and Susan wager to cover your doubled score).

Susan: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Alan, hoping that you give the correct response and Nathan doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $7,501 to cover Alan's doubled score, but no more than $8,700 if you want to top Nathan on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,499 and win if both Nathan and Alan miss Final.

Nathan: Wager $10,601 to cover Susan.
