Drew: Wager $9,401 to cover Jon.
Jon: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Lorraine, hoping that you give the correct response and Drew doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $9,001 to cover Lorraine's doubled score, but no more than $9,200 if you want to top Drew on a Triple Stumper
; or bet up to $299 and win if both Drew and Lorraine miss Final.
Lorraine: You ought to try wagering between $301 and $8,700. This will top a $0 wager by Jon while still beating Drew and Jon on the Triple Stumper
(should Drew wager to cover Jon's doubled score and Jon wager to cover your doubled score).FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
