Mind Teasers : Tic Tac Toe Winning Strategy Puzzle

Difficulty Popularity

Let's just say that we are playing tic-tac-toe in a different manner. You all must be quite familiar with the game. Only, we have changed the rules slightly. Refer the picture. There are white and black markers instead of the usual circle and cross. They just represent two different people. Each player gets to play just three times. After that, he can only move the markers from one square to the adjacent empty square.

For example, if you see the figure, you will find that now, if it's white's turn, he can move from 6 to 3. And then whatever the black player may do, the next move that white will play will be moving the marker from 5 to 2 and he will win the game (three in a row).

Now, you have to acknowledge everything and decide that if both the players are playing with the perfect strategy, will the white player (the first to play) be the winner always? Or the black can win? Or they can lead the game to a draw every time?

We can create number 100 by using all numbers, i.e.0123456789 and mathematical operators (+/-) in many ways.
Example
98 + 7 + 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 + 2 - 1 = 100
