Enter three post-DJ! Round scores below to see wagering suggestions for each player.
Anne: You ought to try wagering between $501 and $5,900. This will top a $0 wager by Marsha while still beating Phil and Marsha on the Triple Stumper (should Phil wager to cover Marsha's doubled score and Marsha wager to cover your doubled score).
Marsha: You ought to wager to cover Anne, 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 $8,000. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $7,000 (to shut out Anne) or less than $6,400 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Anne). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Phil.
Phil: Wager $7,201 to cover Marsha.
