    I donīt understand this instruction, can someone help me? Which value will have sum?
    player can take two values "0" or "X" which number returns?
    (Im thinking that value will be between -2 and 2 more or less).

    --------> int sum = player.equals("O") ? -2 : 2;

    Are you asking what
    Java Code:
    int sum = player.equals("O") ? -2 : 2;
    is?

    If so, It's basically saying that if player is equal to "O", then set sum equal to negative two. If player does not equal "0", then set sum to positive two. I hope that helps.
