Four-fifths for first place

Steven: If you think Bruce is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $300 to beat Doug and Bruce on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Bruce is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $1,801 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Bruce) and $3,900 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Bruce: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Steven, hoping that you give the correct response and Doug doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $2,101 to cover Steven's doubled score, but no more than $4,500 if you want to top Doug on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $1,799 and win if both Doug and Steven miss Final.

Doug: Wager $5,101 to cover Bruce.
