FABRICSVENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLESFour-fifths for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
David: Wager $9,701 to cover Victoria.
Victoria: You ought to wager to cover Curt, 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 $11,200. You are in Stratton's Dilemma
, calling for a wager of more than $10,600 (to shut out Curt) or less than $8,200 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Curt). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper
is more likely than a singleton miss by David.
Curt: You ought to try wagering between $301 and $7,900. This will top a $0 wager by Victoria while still beating David and Victoria on the Triple Stumper
(should David wager to cover Victoria's doubled score and Victoria wager to cover your doubled score).FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
