Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.
Four-fifths (exactly) for first place
Curtis: Consider risking between $201 and $2,599. This will top a $0 wager by Barbara while still beating Steve on the Triple Stumper (should Steve wager to cover Barbara's doubled score).
Barbara: You ought to wager to cover Curtis, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you ought to choose between wagering $0 or maximizing your winnings with a bet of all $5,600. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $5,200 (to shut out Curtis) or less than $2,800 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Curtis). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Steve.
Steve: Wager $4,200, but no more than that: you cannot afford to lose by $1 to a likely wager of $2,800 on the part of Barbara.
