Because your loop termination condition is not what you want. It will probably terminate after the first move is entered.

There are several things you can do to make this program work rather better. For a start, it's really helpful to layout the program correctly. Any text book should show the conventions used.

A simpler design would be to check for a win immediately after each move, and then have the main loop terminate after nine moves.

i always check whether the play satisfy the wining conditions or not .. and this is done after every play .. but i think , as you said , the problem is in the condition of the while loop
do you have any idea about that ?

Yes. I already suggested my idea. Count the moves.

If you want to know what your test is doing at the moment, remember that && binds more tightly than ||, and try out some examples on paper. For example, suppose the first move is in position 0,0. What will the loop condition evaluate?

It would also be a good idea to initialize the board before the game starts, although strictly speaking this isn't necessary with c++.
