Today GM Sam Shankland gives his recommendations for black in the main line Meran Variation (6.Qc2) of the Semi Slav. He focuses on black's e5-pawn break, the "dos and don'ts" of that idea, when it works out to a draw, and when black can achieve some real fighting chances. He provides example games of his own, as well as from other Top Level GMs.
