In Maker-Breaker positional games two players, Maker and Breaker, play on a finite or infinite board with the goal of claiming or preventing the opponent from getting a finite winning set, respectively. For different games there are several winning strategies for Maker or Breaker. One class of winning strategies is the so-called pairing (paving) strategies. Here, we describe all possible pairing strategies for the 9-in-a-row game. Furthermore, we define a graph of the pairings, containing 194,543 vertices and 532,107 edges, in order to give them a structure. A complete characterization of the graph is also given.
