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

Two-thirds (exactly) for first place

Alec: You do have some slim hope of taking 1st place, and it's most likely to happen in the event that you're the only one to respond correctly to Final. Wager between $1,001 and $1,999.

Steve: Normally in this scenario you would wager all or nothing, but in this case a $0 wager isn't an optimal option because it doesn't cover Alec's doubled score. Wager all $3,000.

Sherry: Wager $1,500 for the tie. Steve has cause to bet either nothing or everything, and you can't afford to lose by $1 to a nothing bet.
