In this special Tic Tac Toe, three in a row loses!
You are playing the O's and it is your turn.
What move can you make to force your opponent to end up with three X's in a row, so he loses?

It looks like putting the 'O' in either bottom corner will work.

Looks like bottom left.
Middle blocks the XXX
Either of the rights, if X then goes bottom left, O has to block the XXX or end up with OOO
