Amit: Wager $2,001 to cover Matt, but no more than $4,399 so as not to fall behind Ellen's doubled score.
Matt: You have the hope of surpassing Amit if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $6,001 to force Amit to wager to win while also protecting your position from being usurped by Ellen.
Ellen: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper
