Four-fifths (exactly) for first place

Weak form of Shore's Conjecture

Kirsten: Too bad for you, Kirsten, your score is less than Doug's score minus Cody'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.

Cody: Your score is exactly 4/5ths of Doug's score, so wager $6,000. If Doug wagers properly, you'll tie each other should you both get Final wrong, and if Doug makes the mistake of overwagering, you'll win the stumper.

Doug: Wager $9,000, but no more than that: you cannot afford to lose by $1 to a likely wager of $6,000 on the part of Cody. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $5,001.
