2011 MEMOIRSVENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLESThree-quarters for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Trevor: Wager $7,601 to cover Judy.
Judy: You ought to wager to cover Michelle, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper
if you do so, you should choose between wagering $0 and maximizing your winnings with a wager of all $11,100. You are in Stratton's Dilemma
, calling for a wager of more than $10,100 (to shut out Michelle) or less than $4,100 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Michelle). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper
is more likely than a singleton miss by Trevor.
Michelle: Consider risking between $501 and $3,600. This will top a $0 wager by Judy while still beating Trevor on the Triple Stumper
(should Trevor wager to cover Judy's doubled score).FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
