Sam: Wager $6,601 to cover Brad.
Brad: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Amelia, hoping that you give the correct response and Sam doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $4,601 to cover Amelia's doubled score, but no more than $5,400 if you want to top Sam on a Triple Stumper
; or bet up to $1,599 and win if both Sam and Amelia miss Final.
Amelia: You ought to try wagering between $1,601 and $3,000. This will top a $0 wager by Brad while still beating Sam and Brad on the Triple Stumper
