  plang: 6 Ne5 was played occasionally in this opening when it was young. It is not even mentioned in the books I have on the Semi-Slav. White gets a healthy king-side majority but Botvinnik counters this fairly easily. I wonder if this variation would have lost favor as much against a different defender less talented than Botvinnik. Perhaps 12 Kf1 would weaken the white squares less. ..39 Ne5 is a pretty tactical defense.

  ToTheDeath: Black gets a clear advantage after an inaccurate opening by White, gaining control of the weakened light squares and anchoring a knight on e4, and then threads his way through his opponent's attempts at complicating like a champ.

One pretty variation that remained offstage: 30. Bxe5+ Rxe5 31.Qd8+ Ka7 32.Rc8 Rxf5+! and Black mates first.
