Default why is f=(1- f) + 1/2 the BEST he can do?

There are two strategies for Marie:
1. Max she can get 'f' (i.e. she goes first and Jeremy gives nothing to her in next cut)
2. Max she can get: (1- f) + 1/2

Jeremy can force her to make the obvious choice if she gets the same thing in both the strategies which is
f = (1- f) + 1/2
