There is no way to beat Impossible Tic Tac Toe since it is made where you cannot win. Getting the AI to tie is the only way to do better than losing. To do this, you'll need to:

  • Put an X in one corner of the grid.
  • Place an X in another corner of the grid.
  • Block the AI's next O with another X.
  • Do this until you draw.

Basically, your strategy is to block two corners, then counter any attempts for the AI to make three O's. If you do this correctly, you'll get a draw every time you play. Sadly, this is the best you can hope for in Impossible Tic Tac Toe.
