Question about 3.Nf3 for Nimzo players

E20 Nimzo Indian game with a theoretical value
[Event "100th ch-GBR 2013"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "2013.08.01...|/pgn]
I want to present a very good E20 game played by our Tony at 100th ch-GBR 2013. It attracted my attention because it finished in 21 moves with  a win for black against a very strong opponent.

Anyway, what made me to be interested in this game wa
