Four-fifths for first place

Kathy: You ought to try wagering between $501 and $4,800. This will top a $0 wager by Peter while still beating Linda and Peter on the Triple Stumper (should Linda wager to cover Peter's doubled score and Peter wager to cover your doubled score).

Peter: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Kathy, hoping that you give the correct response and Linda doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $5,301 to cover Kathy's doubled score, but no more than $5,900 if you want to top Linda on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $499 and win if both Linda and Kathy miss Final.

Linda: Wager $6,101 to cover Peter.
