Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-10  sneaky pete: I couldn't find any definite confirmation, but this may be Siegfried Bernard van Mindeno, born March 26, 1905, in Berlin. Youngest son of Bernard van Mindeno from the City of Rotterdam and Kaatje Elias Zeldenrust. He may have been an uncle of Heinz Erwin van Mindeno.

The original family name was Van Minden, probably after the city of Minden in Westphalia, a region in Germany. In the middle of the 19th century a female Van Minden, for some unexplained but no doubt very good reason, added an <o> to her name. She somehow managed to transmit this mutated name to both her husband and their children.

I'm sure it's him:

S.B. van Mindeno here and here, and there are some more examples.

  paavoh: According to the CG database, he has played only one Caro-Kann, lost the game, and got the opening named after him: the Mindeno variation 1.e4 c6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3 Bg4.

It is not quite on par with a Gordie Howe hat trick but still pretty good :-)
