Four-fifths for first place

Dave: If you think Ferris is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $800 to beat Tom and Ferris on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think Ferris is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $2,701 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by Ferris) and $6,200 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

Ferris: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Dave, hoping that you give the correct response and Tom doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,501 to cover Dave's doubled score, but no more than $8,100 if you want to top Tom on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,699 and win if both Tom and Dave miss Final.

Tom: Wager $8,501 to cover Ferris.
