Riddle: Coins on a Table

Your friend pulls out a perfectly circular table and a sack of quarters, and proposes a game.

"We'll take turns putting a quarter on the table," he says. "Each quarter must lay flat on the table, and cannot sit on top of any other quarters. The last person to successfully put a quarter on the table wins."

He gives you the choice to go first or second. What should you do, and what should your strategy be to win?

Each move you make should be based on your opponent's previous move.
