Can You Win Tic Tac Toe With 3 Corners?

In Tic Tac Toe you win if you get 3 corners. So can you get 3 corners? We’re thinking about Tic Tac Toe with an infinite board – so there’s no limit on how many moves ahead it is possible to predict the outcome of a game. For example, if we reach this position:

– .

– X –

We can easily see that X always wins so my question is whether or not this holds elsewhere. I have tried solving Tic Tac Toe using math and am interested in knowing more about Tic Tac Toe theory and logic puzzles of Tic Tac Toe such as variations like this one where you must win within a certain number of moves and whether Tic Tac Toe can be solved more generally.
