This is my debut game with the Nimzo-Indian and instead of exploiting White's overextension, I made a mistake as early as on move 11, after which the game took on a wild character, with my knight having to be sacrificed for three pawns... Embarassed

After 11.Nf3 (in the diagram-->),
I could have opened the position to my advantage with 11..exd5.

Below the line is the game with comments, which you can "copy-paste" into your desktop PGN-viewer application. (Chessbase Reader, for example)
The reason for doing this: unfortunately, the viewer here simply ignores "Text Before Move" comments as well as regular, built-in (i.e. not textual) "+/-", "!", etc codes. (They don't show at all when you replay the game here, nor do they appear in the "PGN" tab.)

the most popular move, recommended by both [CBFT] NID, The Easy Way by Aagaard
(2006) and Openings for Black according to Karpov by Khalifman (2001), but
this move is suggested by Sokolov, according to whom in his Winning Pawn
Structures (2008), "every mediocre booked-up player can draw against a strong
GM in this line", by which he means 6..d5. Now, after the game, I don't think this would have been an issue in our case, for White played anti-positional opening moves.}

understand the position.} Na5 8. e4 d6 9. Bd3 b6 10. f4 {? Again, this is too

mistake, I hardly believe I made this move. I usually don't make this kind of
moves, but I play very few games OTB, thus experience is lacking, not to
mention that this was the 1st time I had tried the NID. If I had seen examples
of how White usually wins in the Sämisch, I would have thought twice before
this move.} (11... exd5 {is the right move, after which Black is better, since
White is both underdeveloped and overextended. This is Modern Benoni-like
