Coin on table riddle


You are sitting with one opponent at an empty, round table. Taking turns, you should place one euro 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 euro 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?

    First, you have to put the coin in the middle of the table. And for your next consequent turns just mirror the previous step of your opponent. ie place the coin on the opposite side of where your opponent placed it in the previous step.
