Nimzo 4.f3 d5 - main line 8.dxc5 Qa5
If the Nimzo-Indian equalises, then at least White can make things interesting by playing 4.f3!?. Or so I thought... Shocked

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).

Interesting line for white against Nimzo
Kind of a general question.
