Thank you. I was looking for Keres as White and/or 6.e4.

Padevsky,N - Keres,P [E47]
Alekhine Mem Moskwa, 1956

½-½

  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

I don't think any of this debunks much of anything, but I thought it was a pretty audacious try. And it gives me one more thing to check for in my Nimzo play as Black: try to keep White off e4, and then make sure that e4-e5 isn't a threat (because I doubt that's something I would have considered).

What is the Keres game? I'm not finding it after a preliminary search.

It's not in Hansen nor in Sokolov, unless I missed some transposition (I don't think so), even though no one less than Keres already tried it in 1956.
To me 6.Nge2 Bb7 7.O-O looks like the simpler  try, but d5 is doing OK.

Leela Chess Nimzo novelty

In digging around for some info on 4...h6 in the Caro-Kann, I came across a recent video covering a Leela Chess novelty in the Nimzo-Indian at move 7.

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3 0-0 5.Bd3 b6 6.e4 Bb7 7.e5!? This is reminiscent of what I remember analyzing more than twenty years ago in Dublin (known then as the Whole Hog Variation) in the English/Owen Defence. 7...Bxg2 8.exf6 g6 9.Bg5 Bxh1 10.Qg4 d5 11.Qh4 Nd7 12.f3 Stockfish takes awhile to coming around to think that this position might be equal (liking Black for a bit). Hiarcs still prefers Black.

Naturally, 5...b6 isn't the most common option here, but any thoughts? Does any analysis feature in any of the recent Nimzo books?
