analysis of analysis of tictactoe

consider an analysis of tictactoe
say we describe the board as having 3 possible initial states: x moves
corner, side, or center.
let us then move to O's move. consider first X moves in the corner.
this is a winning move for X.
If X moves in the corner, and O moves to an adjacent side, X can move
in the center which forces a situation where X is threatening a win in
two places. When a win is threatened in two places, the player
threatening this has won. So, X[corner] -> O[adjacent side] is a win
for X.
X corner -> O adjacent -> X wins
