THE OLYMPICSVENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLESThree-quarters for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Chris: Wager $15,201 to cover Rob, but no more than $15,999 so as not to fall behind Donna's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic
wagering, you might risk $2,401.
Rob: You ought to wager between $6,801 (venusian
) and $8,400 (martian
), thereby safely covering a $0 bet by Chris.
Donna: Too bad for you, Donna, your score is less than Chris's score minus Rob's score. Unless they both commit an egregious wagering error, you've no hope of moving into first place. 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
