Would any of you guys be able to tell me your answer to the following questions so that I can double check my answer

1. You and your opponent have the goal of forcing the other guy to be the first to say '60'. You must announce numbers in ascending order. You can add to whatever number is said in increments of 1-10. You can choose to go first or second, and the person who goes first can begin with any number between 1 and 10. What is the perfect strategy for winning?"
