# Table for Two

You are sitting with one opponent at an empty, round table. Taking turns, you should place one dollar on the table, in such a way that it touches none of the coins that are already on the table. The first player that is not able to place a dollar on the table has lost. By tossing a coin, it has been decided that you may start.

Which strategy will you follow to make sure you are guaranteed to win?

Place the first coin in middle, now mirror the moves of your opponent i.e. if he/she puts it north of your first coin, place your next coin, south of your first coin at the exact same position corresponding to your opponents coin and repeat this process until your opponent runs out of space and loses inevitably.
