Semi-Slav 101: Reynolds Variation

The Reynolds variation arises after White pushes to d5 rather than e5. It is one of the main lines arising out of the modern Meran move order (8...Bb7), but is often reached via the Classical Semi-Slav order, too (8...a6). Don't feel sorry for Kyle Morrison. Although he's the victim of a minature here where he gives away about 400 Elos, he will later take the scalps of two near 2400s in this tournament: David Cummings and Emory Tate.
