Is It Nimzowitsch's Idea? No, It's My Idea!

I found this strong plan after fifteen minutes meditation on the 7th move of the game. After ...b7-b5 followed by ...b4 the white knight must go away from central squares and the black bishop can come to the important e4 square on the long diagonal. I was very glad I devised so wise idea.
However, in this 2001 year I read in the old book, "Chess Yearbook 1937" ("Shakhmatny ezhegodnik 1937", Moscow), a strange phrase: "Nimzowitsch has shown the way to equality: 7...b5 8. Qb3 b4 9. Na4 Be4".
8. Qb3 b4 9. Na4
After 9.Nb1 Black has a comfortable game.
9...Be4!
Pointe.










10. Bg2!
The best.
10...Nbd7
Dangerous is 10...Bxf3? 11. Bxf3 with strong pressure of White.
11. O-O Be7 12. Bd2 Bd5 13. Qc2
Draw by repetition 13...Be4 14. Qb3.
1/2-1/2
