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

I have the same question. Even after looking at above I still dont understand how f is equal to (1-f) + 1/2!!!! Is it that you are trying to equate two strategies? If yes I dont understand how they can be equal?
