I've never heard of that particular algorithm, but if it plays perfectly here's a nice graphical representation:

There are specialized tools available called search engines which will automatically generate lists of links given a search phrase.

A popular one is Google. Typing "minimax algorithm" into the search box will even produce an auto-complete suggestion for "minimax algorithm tic tac toe".

Many links are given, each accompanied by a short description to help you filter out the less relevant links.
It's a very useful tool.

@Zhuge. That map is cool.
