Four-fifths for first place

Michael: If you think Ellen is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $500 to beat Ann and Ellen on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Ellen is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $801 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Ellen) and $2,100 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Ellen: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Michael, hoping that you give the correct response and Ann doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $1,301 to cover Michael's doubled score, but no more than $2,300 if you want to top Ann on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $799 and win if both Ann and Michael miss Final.

Ann: Wager $2,601 to cover Ellen.
