Four-fifths for first place

Ali: If you think Alexander is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $3,600 to beat Mike and Alexander on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Alexander is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $4,201 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Alexander) and $12,000 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Alexander: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Ali, hoping that you give the correct response and Mike doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $7,801 to cover Ali's doubled score, but no more than $11,400 if you want to top Mike on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $4,199 and win if both Mike and Ali miss Final.

Mike: Wager $13,801 to cover Alexander.
