The definition of OP is 

Overpowered (usually in a video game, in which a person or group becomes or is too powerful; has become very popular in the mmorpg crowd).

I use this often in the game of Starcraft when new changes suddenly makes a unit seem too strong i.e OP.

Recently too, I think it's Evan Capel who coined the term "too strong" in Facebook when complimenting some chess player's achievement. So to me OP or "too strong" is the same thing :)


Here's to using the term (hopefully) more in describing (seriously or jokingly) various aspects of Malaysian chess in future :)

GilaChess blog used to publish Birthday greetings to known chess players a couple of years back but stopped doing so when Facebook Birthday wishes made website reminders obsolete.



Still, I will post this one here for one of the veterans in the field of Malaysian chess bloggers who is still active in his postings..



Happy Birthday GiloCatur !!!!

That's the social trend now when someone posts something delicious they had onto Facebook and friend reply with 'tak ajak' or boh jio (in Hokkien).

Initially, that's what I want to say when I was not invited for this year's Malaysian Chess Championship 2017.

First off I have to admit I am grateful, even though there was initial hint that I was to be invited, in the end that did not materialise. Grateful because it is pretty tiring travelling that far and I probably want to save my nowadays limited energy for the coming Malaysian Chess Festival.

In the past, I would have gone to the national level Championship voluntarily on my on cost. There would be a big deal of regret if I missed it, but those days are gone now especially with rising cost of maintaining my own website.

Still, that does not mean I won't go to any other chess event. I will continue going to events that sponsors me.
