I have the following code to check the winner of the TicTacToe game, when any condition within is satisfied (for example here is first condition at line 8 ) I could send the current player a message with his result either he won or lost but I can't give the result of the game to the other player as I am in the current player thread, how could I do this.
I tried to switch to the other player through
but that don't work either
