Nimzo-Indian with 4.Bf4
After playing 4.f3 for years I grew tired of it, same with any line I found against the Grunfeld. I spent a whole year with the Tromp only to find out I simply dislike the positions it gave me.

Move order in the Saemich
Why is 4.f3 considered more accurate than 4.a3 in the Saemich NID? All the supergms play 4.f3, but it allows some lines where black plays Be7 (see Nakamura-Carlsen).
