Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.

Two-thirds (exactly) for first place

Jay: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. You can wager as much as you feel like, but since you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper, you might just want to wager $0.

Shoshana: It's all or nothing, baby. You have even hope of returning to battle Liz next game if you wager $10,000 or $0. Either way, you're banking on a bet to tie by Liz and the ability to prevail in the future.

Liz: Wager $5,000 for the tie. Shoshana has cause to bet either nothing or everything, and you can't afford to lose by $1 to a nothing bet.
