Where's problem in terms to the Bernhards intent?

He assume, that of mine initiate variant 10.Bb3 b5 11.Nd4 leds to 11...Nxd4 (trough a different move order) only to above-mentioned (in the same way strong) variant. It is true, but only in part. In my opinion the move 10.Nd4 (presentation Ben Hague, Bernard, MNb) isn't universal, Black has a possibility of equalization after 10...Bb4!? The similary idea of Black - after filling 10.Bb3! b5 - would but already have not such force (11.Nd4 Bb4 12.Nxc6 etc. see below).

???

The move 10.Bb3 proves me as show the best, contributing (though with difficulties) to advantage white, while after move 10.Nd4 - I hope not. It correspond (mine) ED-theory, according hold true, that advantage white keeps one and only move.
