This cheev is a pain in the ass. I don't care what anyone says. Here's what you need to do. Start a Richest game, on Developer, with the world board. Now on the first two turns, choose the lowest numbers. Then on the next two turns choose the highest numbers, and then see if you are CLOSE in last place by the 5th round.

You have to come is 1st place from LAST place at the end of the game (from 5th round into 6th round), so this is what I changed from the current recommendations across the internet.

Some say to wait until the 5th round, and then just quit the game if things aren't going your way & then restart. I disagree. I say that by the 4th round, it should be YOU in last place by a small margin, and the 1st place guy in 1st by as small a margin as possible. If this is NOT THE CASE, cancel out and quit IN THE FOURTH round, not the 5th, then just restart the game, and it will start you right where you left off --> in the 4th round.

Basically, you are trying to keep as little distance between you, and the 1st place guy. And I found that by playing all the way to the 5th round, I mostly couldn't make my way comfortably into last place, so after 3 hours, I figured I'd get myself nicely positioned in the FOURTH round, and THEN quit out and restart, and then proceed to set up my 5th round. If it didn't go right, I could then quit out/restart, and I'd still be able to keep my 4th round. Make sense?

In my situation I did it with 4 controllers, all set to human. I've heard but can't confirm that you can maybe do this with one controller set to two humans like can be done for the Globe Trotter cheev.
