Kristin: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Brennan, hoping that you give the correct response and Greg doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $11,201 to cover Brennan's doubled score, but no more than $12,400 if you want to top Greg on a Triple Stumper
