Andy and Bob are playing a game on a \( 9 \times 9 \) checkerboard. They take turns to move a move: on his turn, Andy places an X in an empty square while Bob places an O. When the entire checkerboard is filled, Andy scores a point for each row or column that contains more X's than O's, while Bob scores a point for each row or column that contains more O's than X's. The winner of the game is the person with (strictly) more points.

Given that Andy makes the first move, who has the winning strategy?

Note: If they both scored 9 points, then it is considered a draw.
