LITTLE COUNTRIESVENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLESFour-fifths for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Sam: Wager $9,201 to cover Cindy!.
Cindy!: You ought to wager to cover Jennifer, 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 $10,400. You are in Stratton's Dilemma
, calling for a wager of more than $8,800 (to shut out Jennifer) or less than $8,000 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Jennifer). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper
is more likely than a singleton miss by Sam.
Jennifer: You ought to try wagering between $801 and $7,200. This will top a $0 wager by Cindy! while still beating Sam and Cindy! on the Triple Stumper
(should Sam wager to cover Cindy!'s doubled score and Cindy! wager to cover your doubled score).FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE

(Alex: For the past six Jeopardy!
programs, you folks have been getting to know the talented champion Cindy Stowell. Appearing on our show was the fulfillment of a lifelong ambition for that lady. What you did not know is that when we taped these programs with her a few weeks ago, she was suffering from stage IV cancer. And, sadly, on December 5th, Cindy Stowell passed away. So, from all of us here at Jeopardy!
, our sincere condolences to her family and her friends.)
