|Aug-08-05|| ||lentil: you have to get 19 games in before U-man wins one (-11 =7)!|
|Jan-06-06|| ||lentil: well, apparently they've added some games since my comment! :D|

How were they related?
|Feb-13-07|| ||WarmasterKron: A bit of digging around for info on Ujtelky led me to this article with a little biographical information and a picture:|
|Apr-29-08|| ||kramputz: Dr.Maximilian Ujtelky (1915-1979) died in 1979. His last name is a Hungarian name but originally it was "Ujteleky"|
|May-20-08|| ||ketchuplover: happy birthday :)|

"Byl w prostej linii potomkiem wÍgierskiego kompozytora Franciszka Liszta."

|May-20-11|| ||parisattack: Innovator! If his opening ideas are good enough for Spassky ...|
|Apr-20-14|| ||parisattack: "Hero of the Hippo." Indeed.
The article referenced above by <WarMasterKron> is a nice summary of ...e6 and ...g6 together in the French. It seems to be catching on now, if just a little -
The Gurdenidze Robatsch also involves ...e6 and ...g6. The game plays differently with the QB outside the pawn structure - but still many similarities as the position is quite closed.
If the Hippo appeals to you -
'Krazy Kat and Old Hippo' by Wall, Rizzoli, Gifford
'The Hippo Rises' by Martin
Or, just take two aspirins, get some rest and hope it passes.
|Apr-22-15|| ||Fusilli: <His name is attached to the Ujtelky System (b6, Bb7, g6, Bg7, d6, e6, Nd7, Ne7)>|
But, really, is this an honor at all?
I could play a6, b6, c6, d6, e6, and call it the Sana system, but I would not like to immortalize my name that way.
|Apr-20-16|| ||FSR: Another "64" man, like Fischer, Staunton, Steinitz, Planinc, and Mednis.|

|Aug-31-18|| ||Pyke: I was drawn to Ujtelky because I play the English and the Pirc and was looking for game/players to study.|
But, looking at his games gave me a headache. He has a quite unusual, crooked style.
