Prisoner's dilemma

Kaden: If Jess and Liz both wager all $8,400 and give incorrect responses, you'll wind up the winner so long as you don't bet more than $3,399. Since your score is less than half either of theirs (meaning you can't overtake them by wagering money) and your win is predicated on both of them getting Final wrong (meaning that, chances are, you won't get it right either), a wager of $0 seems wisest.

Liz: Don't trust Jess? Then bet $8,400 and hope for an easy Final Jeopardy! clue.

Jess: Do you trust Liz? Then bet $0.
