    2. 機先を制する」 When somebody 機先を制する over you, it means the person do something that prevents or disturbs something you were just trying to do. 「先手を打つ」 This also means somebody do something before you, but unlike 機先を制する, it not necessarily has to happen in a very short period of time. I believe the expression itself comes from the 先手 (the first mover) from the board games such as 囲碁 or chess. Somebody will do it before me 私は Somebody に機先を制されるだろう。 私は Somebody に先手を打たれるだろう。 I think it would sound more natural when you use the passive voice.
